The Work

The artist made this portrait of his father with a serious expression, and his left arm is held across his chest. His face and neck are lined, and his bald head also reflects his advanced age. However, his direct gaze at the viewer (his son, the artist) sparkles with intelligence. The style of the portrait is very realistic, which seems to be a mark of respect toward the subject, who does not seem to want to be idealized.
