Description: A portrait of an artisan.

The likeness beautifully captures his character. In his suit and tie with his hands gently folded over each other and posing, as requested, looking ahead. His personality completely captured. The green palette is daring and difficult to master. It is very adventurist.

Size: 134cm x 73cm

Additional notes:

  • Circa 1975.
