Salvator Fabris
Portrait of italian fencing master, and presumed assassin, Salvator Fabris (1544-1618). This portrait was based on the frontispiece of his rapier fencing treatise  Lo Schermo, overo Scienza d’Arme  (or at least I believe it is this version as there are two frontispieces for both of his treatises and I couldn't confirm so please correct me if I'm wrong). 

 A few curiosities that some may know and the less knowledgable of the man that was Fabris may not know. He was knighted Supremus Eques on the order of the seven hearts, you can see the "medal" on his left breast. The motto around the picture reads Salvator Vabris Supremus Eques Ordinis Septem Cordium Atatis Sua LXI - Many Thanks to Christopher Treichel.

Hello everyone, the poor resistants that still have the will to follow me here :) 

It's been a long time, a very long time, been involved in all sorts of shenanigans and projects, been trying to make a living, and failing, and recently I resurrected my patreon. 

So here's a brief presentation on it: 

In an attempt to join my two passions, Art and HEMA, I decided to resurrect my patreon with a fresh new project. 
Painting fencing masters. 
 
The list is growing strong and canvas prints, posters, etc. will be made available on RedBubble even if you aren't my patron. So you won't miss out entirely. For my patrons I will have other things prepared like wips, status updated on each paintings, process gifs, and even providing some of the core files so you can have more control on how you have them printed, or if you just feel like using them for different purposes. 
All the income will go towards supporting my art to be able to continue delivering artwork and... maybe getting my first steel sword!
For prints, posters and other goodies, you can check my redbubble page:
www.redbubble.com/people/ruife… 
If for some reason you can't (or won't) support my artwork, feel free to follow me here to stay up to date:
www.facebook.com/RuiFerreiraAr…

So that's that, hope I can count on some of your support there, and of course commissions are still open as usual :) 

Cheers everyone, and I'll be in touch always, if not here, then on facebook here [link]

Capo Ferro


So to kick off this project here is the first entry of the list. 

Master Ridolfo Capo Ferro as shown in the frontispiece of his rapier fencing treatise  "Gran Simulacro dell'Arte e dell'Uso della Scherma" (c.1610). 

(or as my friends call him - Tintin's evil twin)

According to Nick Thomas from the Academy of Historical Fencing, master Capo Ferro was 52 years old when his fencing treatise was published. 

As a student (and instructor of his work) it was only suited that I made my homage to the master whose work is so widely studied, interpreted and tought today. 

As a neat detail, you can see my name signed right before his with the roman date of 2017, if for some reason you can't read it

Nicoletto Giganti


Second on the list was renaissance fencing master Nicoletto Giganti (c.1550-c.1622), whose notable work in rapier fencing "Scola, overo teatro" and "Libro secondo" are still studied to this day in various HEMA clubs. 

This portrait was based on the frontispiece of "Scola, overo teatro" and was particularly noticeable that despite the name, he was a very small man (this is made clear through the size of his head which I kept large in order to maintain a distinguishable feature). 

Below the inscription reads

"Nicoletto Giganti

See you soon for the next on the list, Salvator Fabris
