|Richard at age five, Alice Neel|
Reading about the Dublin Contemporary 2011 Exhibition in Dublin I came across this image by Alice Neel: "Richard at age five". It is on show at the Douglas Hide Gallery and I truly hope I get to see it "in the flesh" so to speak.
I love its simplicity, the image draws me in.
As paintings go, and sculpture actually, I am drawn to portraits, yet I've never (?) tried to paint one.
Who knows, the new studio-to-be and the images below might just change all that?
Other artist that I love are, among many others...
Charlie Toorop; and
The lather two are Dutch... there is hope for me yet? :-)
