1589. DAS PORTRÄT VON SHORTY (JAMIE WYETH)

RETRATO DE "SHORTY"/ PORTRAIT OF SHORTY
I'm very touched by this portrait.
" In 1963, at the age of 17, he painted Portrait of Shorty, a bravura minutely detailed portrait of a local railroad worker. Shorty was a man who lived for twenty years in Chadds Ford, in a humble hut as a hermit, only speaking with a local store owner. The composition of an unshaven Shorty against an elegant wing chair is unexpected. Joyce Hill Stoner, art historian and paintings conservator, found it has the "exactitude characteristic of sixteenth-century German oil technique."" Thanks, Wiki!!
