Portraits are works of art that record the likenesses of humans or animals that are alive or have been alive. The painting, so carefully inscribed, was presumably one of particular significance to the painter, and it has been suggested that it may be a self-portrait. The direction of the man’s gaze also suggests this.
The painting is signed and inscribed in an elaborate way on the frame. the sitter seems to emerge from the darkness, his face and headdress modeled by the light that falls from the left. The viewer is drawn towards the image by the penetrating gaze of the sitter.
At first glance, it is just a simple portrait. The man stares out at us. One wonders how long it took the artist to master this part of the painting and how many preliminary drawings were made before he was happy.
Feel the good vibes of this portrait and book one for you and your loved ones.
