Casaro the Barbarian!

The Italian-born Renato Casaro has worked with his fair share of auteurs, including Bernardo Bertolucci, Francis Ford Coppola and yes, even Kevin Costner.

Having sketched out a distinguished career of painting epic scenes and classic Hollywood spoofs, he has since moved onto do portraits of the American West and African wildlife, much like his fellow contemporaries, John Solie, Robert Tanenbaum, and Howard Terpning.
