Title         Man with eyes closed no.3
Medium  oil on board
Size          15.5cmx15cm
Year         2006

This portrait and two more of a friend, in the same series,
were inspired
by my seeing Albrecht Durer's painting of
his father in the
National Gallery of London in 2005. I
was really struck by
the sensitivity of Durer's oil-painting,
dated 1497. More recently,
I am interested to learn, from an
article by Johnathan Jones in the Guardian (Sept. 1st 2001)
that Durer was also fasinated by
Leonardo De Vinci's work.
