Description

In Portrait of a Young Man, the posture in a three-quarter turn, the off-centre placing of the figure on the picture's surface, the free brush-strokes positioned in an almost gestural approach for the rendering of the white of the shirt, and, above all, the penetrating gaze and the pursed lips which depict the young man's character are features which make this picture, of small dimensions, a mature creation of the artist.
