Title         Portrait of a unicorn (after Raphael)
Medium  oil on wooden panel
Size          13cmx9.5 cm
Year         2004

This detail is  from Raphael's 'Lady with unicorn'.
I interpret 'old master' paintings for different reasons.
Primarily, it is a homage to the artists themselves. I
deeply respect
their work. Secondly, it is a learning
experience. I am
fasinated by painting method and
technique. Thirdly,
and most importantly, it is an
enquiry into my own connection with the artist's work.
