This oil on canvas is part of a small series of paintings inspired by the "Heads of Character" by Franz Xaver Messerschmidt, a German sculptor of the 18th century. I took a lot of fun painting these exaggeratedly expressive heads. Messerschmidt was considered crazy at the time he sculpted these heads, but that's the main point of his work. They were exhibited at the Louvre Museum Paris in 2011 with the collaboration of Neue Galerie New York.
This painting is unique ! My works are very carefully packaged, a tracking code is provided and they are all insured.
