Krisjan

Francois Krige

1979

Oil on Canvas

A wider crop than most of his portraits, Krige still creates a sense of intimacy in this painting by cropping out parts of the seated man’s shoe. Like most of his work, the background has been stripped of most details, in order to focus on the subject: the seated man. Again, here the crop of the paintings invites the viewer into the work – creating a sense of a personal and intimate connection with the subject. According, to sources, the man depicted is Krisjan, a close friend of the artist and his family
