The author called the painting "The Head of a Man", as if it did not deserve to be called a portrait. But this is a real portrait, it is not just a head, it is a face, even a look that immediately attracts attention, does not allow tearing it away. The author showed the viewer only a part of the heros face, not even very clearly written. But it turned out so expressive, deep, intense. A man looks somewhere far into the distance, through and over, and this as lifts him above everything else, expands [Expand]
