Description

Greek Head (Red) is an oil painting on a loose canvas. The canvas is almost square.

 

And the head is positions in the left of the frame. Leaving the right part of the canvas unpainted. Showing seemingly the original unprepared canvas.

 

However, looking more closely. It is not clear if the canvas is prepared with gesso and is then partially bleached. Or if the reverse is the case. The seemingly unpainted canvas is actually painted.

 

The head is a strong-looking male face. With read accents accentuating a force or light coming from below. Is he taming a beast? Or is he hovering above a fire?
