About request an edit to this page

chiaroscuro (kee-ahr-uh-skyoo-roh) Italian for clear dark is a term in art for a contrast between light and dark. Most often associated with the Italian renaissance painter Caravaggio, chiaroscuro is a technique used to describe bold contrasts affecting a whole composition and used to achieve a sense of volume in modelling three-dimensional objects, this concept of contrast and volume is expressed through the décor of the dining room, marked by high backed banquettes and an open kitchen.
