Description This modernist abstract portrait- rendered in ink, watercolor, and pencil- features an abundance of intersecting color planes that collectively form a man's face. It was created by the critically acclaimed Manhattan-based designer/fine artist, Marshall Watkins, whose studied eye has helped realize breathtaking interiors from 5th Avenue to Los Cabos and Sweden. This stoic and dignified portrait offers hues of emerald, amethyst, lemon chiffon, and citrine contrasted with neutral skin tones. With its combination of abstraction and figuration, this compelling work recalls the fractionated faces of Chuck Close. This painting represents contemporary portraiture at its finest, outstandingly representing a tradition that dates back to the advent of painting. Furthermore, the work's geometric composition and varied palate makes it incredibly versatile as a decorative object, guaranteeing that it will fit in beautifully with practically any style of decor. Excellent condition. We have two more portraits, in the same size and style, by Marshall Watson available. These pieces would also work exceptionally well as a triptych.
