‘Male Portrait II’
Oil on Canvas
This portrait is an example of the quintessential style artist Francois Krige uses in his Montague Collection. The male figure is pictured in a close crop, with a focus on the expression on his face. He also stands out against the yellow background, his blue hat creates a contrast that is also picked up by the shadow. With a cup in his hand, he could be one of the ‘burgers of Montague’ on a lunch break.
