Oil on Canvas
There is something very human and life-like in the way that Francois Krige has captured his portraits on canvas. The man pictured here is one of the many burgher’s of Montagu that Francois Krige has painted. As with many of his works, the attention falls on the face of the subject and the expression it holds. With the frowned forehead and concerned look in the eyes, combined with Krige’s use of colour, raw human emotion is conveyed.
