      Nice portrait!
      Lovely smiling eyes and superb kind of "à l'impériale" moustache with barb!

      This is an unexpected oil on panel. It is interesting that Eveillard was creating and successfully showing such work in a 1913 Paris embracing Picasso & Braque ... and revelling in the shock of colours and shapes that marked the height of Analytic Cubism.

      There is a humanity in the brutal honesty of this portrait, a humanity that asks to be known; a humanity that analytic cubism never achieved (nor attempted). Yet, I must say that this totally honest and self-revealimg portrait makes me so sad that I want to cry.

      Thank you for the post.

      Daisy1000,
      Thank you! The last few sentences sum up my emotional response to this painting perfectly. I was drawn to this image for that reason.
