Burr Singer

Burr Singer Portrait of a Man 1945

Regular price $2,200.00
An arresting portrait, very distinctive, immediately intriguing: he’s in his pajamas and dressing-gown. An intelligent, sensitive face belonging to someone poised on the cusp of middle age, the beard heavy as if he hasn’t shaved yet that day. Has he been ill, is he just back from the war? As with the best portraits, one is compelled to look, to look again, to wonder, and imagine. A beautiful work, very of its time and place: postwar Los Angeles. Oil on board 17″ x 23″, frame 21″ x 27″
