    Additional Information & Condition

    The male portrait/self-portrait is protruding from a dark background only in half, gazing directly at the viewer, the second eye remaining in the darkness. The hairless man with red eyes and low ears is wearing a petrol green coat. Interestingly, Jean Rustin, whose main body of work was dominated by abstraction, decided to fully return to figuration in the 1970s. He is a French painter, who studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and lived for a while in New York.

    The painting is in very good condition. The frame strips have some minor traces of use. The dimensions of the stretcher are 40 x 40 cm and the total size including the frame is 41.5 x 41.4 cm. (tm)
