Mortimer Wilson Jr Still Life: Suit of Lights circa 1940
This extraordinary work of realist painting by the legendary illustrator Mortimer Wilson Jr takes as its subject a bullfighter's personal effects. In other words, it is a work of portraiture however indirect. It is also an example of the art of story-telling by one of its great practitioners. Breathtaking technique married to unusual restraint, a tragedy is felt, as a realization grows.
