Window Studio Portraits

 

The subject of a portraitist working at the highest level of the genre is neither himself nor the flesh and bone before him but a complex and evolving matrix of relationships, a tissue of observation, expectation, and ego that proceeds from the painter’s perception but rapidly outpaces it. (Review of Martin Gayford, Man With a Blue Scarf, about painter Lucien Freud by Stephen Maine on artcritical.com, 07/13/2011)
