This work exemplifies the artist's verve in the treatment of expression. It is painted in a way one can almost hear the music arise from the energic gestures. Made from a series of drawings based on photos of an orchestral video, the painting exhibits a mastery of facial anatomy used as a way to convey pictorial poetry.
