Jerzy Panek - Self Portait

Jerzy Panek (1918-2001)

Self Portait

Oil on card; 16 x 13.5 cms

Panek is a highly regarded Polish artist and a master printmaker, especially in the use of woodcuts. This painting is made up of small dabs of paint that could almost be chisel marks. The subject emerges by its recognisable facial features through a process that is also abstract in nature.
