I like this work for the materiality of the painting ( large brushstrokes, drips…)
I like this work for the way the portrait imposes itself on us (useof black and white, huge format…)
I like this work because it establishes a dialogue between the artist and his favourite painter : Gustave Courbet
I like this work for its intense gaze that seems to question the spectator
And you, what do you think about it ?
