Now its time for everyone except Lawrence to look away.
I have sent a private message to Lawrence but got no reply
Next portrait
Hi Lawrence
Congratulations on getting the answer.
If you can suggest the next one, I will upload it for you.
The website address would be useful, but if not, just give me the correct title for it and I will try to track it down.

I have tried emailing you but that function is turned off on your profile, so I need you to email me. My email address is [email protected].
Be quick mate, the natives are getting restless. They have stopped chatting and are now whispering. Not a good sign!
Regards
Graham

Re: Name that Portrait! December 2005

I sent my pardner a PM but all them Ozzies is asleep at the moment. Just a few more hours and they'll be waking up to their typical breakfast of a kangaroo steak with a fried egg on top and a couple of litres of Foster's.

Don't worry folks, it's a nice easy one.

While you're waiting, have a look at Michael Hussar's portraits: on his website they're under "Alla Prima." Mindblowing.

Great tip, Lawrence! His stuff is wonderful, if a little disturbing in places! Such a theatrical gallery. Thanks for the heads up.

EASY ONE!
Now that's not what I expected from you mate!
I haven't received a PM from you Lawrence. If you email me I promise not to let anyone else know your address.
I will keep an eye out for your reply.
Now I'm off for a bit of wombat and emu stew. Bit early for the Fosters, I never start drinking before 9am.
Regards
Graham

Re: Name that Portrait! December 2005

That Hussar artist is indeed a great link Lawrence especially the alla prima page (somewhat confusing as to user-friendliness). I'm always interested in alla prima paintings ...
Ciao tutti !

Have just e-mailed my pawdna. Hope he's not in bed yet. Gosh, the sun never sets on Wetcanvas, but some of us are going to bed while others are just beginning their day.

Now we are up and running. Thanks for your patience guys, but now that we have each others email addresses there should be less delay in the future.
This is Lawrence's selection, so any hints can come from him.
Actually, by the look in this guy's eyes, I wonder if this is a portrait of Lawrence?
Regards
Graham

Re: Name that Portrait! December 2005

Lawrence: That Hussar stuff is first class! Thanks for the tip!
G: What´s a wombat??

O.

A cute looking thing when small but agressive and irritable as an adult. They are about the size of a small pig. Very short legs, burrow into the ground, and I expect they taste horrible! I first saw them on the Nullabor Plain which is a desert like plain that separates Western Australia from the Eastern states of Australia. They can run very fast and they are very very solid. If you hit one with your car you can turn over. I don't have a picture to send you but I expect they would be easy to find on the internet. They are often used in Australian children's stories and even in TV soapies. This is misleading because our kids grow up thinking they are cuddly and soft and want one for a pet. But pet material they ain't!

Re: Name that Portrait! December 2005

I was lucky again!!
Eduard Kosmack by Egon Schiele,1910. http://www.artchive.com/artchive/S/s...smack.jpg.html
Schiele´s style is unmistakeable!
The next one: back to the classics, a perfect example of flemish portrait technique!

Greetings,
Osmar

Re: Name that Portrait! December 2005

Osmar, my hat is off to you my friend. You are one worthy opponent, and I would not attribute this to luck!!!!!

That is a beautiful painting. He looks like a monk. I'm not familiar with the flemish technique, so I'm off to look that up.

Re: Name that Portrait! December 2005

Hi Eileen,
G. almost misled me with the Schiele one, I bet he left that signature on purpose!! Totally unlike Schiele´s usual signature, but the style of the painting was so like him I had to check it anyway, and bingo!
About the last one: I came across it when I was researching for a commission to paint a picture of St. Francis of Assisi (I had no clue how he could look like!). I was surprised to stumble upon this portrait (not of him, of course!) by a very well known painter, but totally unlike his usual monumental paintings.
Greetings,
Osmar
