Tony Mac Cárthaigh
Not sure how I missed this fine painting (maybe because before I had limited the upload size, and the reproduction wasn't so clear then). Viewing this full size now is a real spectacle, and I'm changing my rating to masterpiece (that's a first for me), as I believe it's one of the best works you've done. Other than the understated tones, the exciting pictorial format of light thrusting and breaking, it's a gold mine for critical/philosophical analysis and interpretation with that figure disappearing into shade, and the calm knowing gaze of his interlocutor. One day Kagan, after you're long gone, this one will be the subject of a dissertation.
Thanks, everything you've said is absolutely true, I have nothing to add.
