About

Red chalk on paper. This portrait evokes the work of Carl Van Loo (1705-1765). In particular, see in La Cene (Last Meal), Arras, Musee des Beaux-Arts, the disciple seated to the right of Christ. That painting is a study for the paintings of the choir of Santa Croce in Turin (Les Van Loo, fils d'Abraham, Catalogue of the Exhibition in the Musee des Beaux-Arts de Nice, Nov. 2000- Feb. 2001).
