The Maybe Man
After Sir Anthony van Dyck, 'Studies of a Man’s Head'
20” x 15” (51 x 38 cm) Acrylic on gessoed panel/ £2750
‘The Maybe Man’ is a copy of van Dyck’s, Studies of a Man’s Head, a work that hangs in the Rockox House Museum, Antwerp. I made this copy from photographs. Who is the model? Was he a real person, a real someone who lived and breathed? Or was he just a figment - a pigment figment - of the great artist’s imagination? That’s not the point. Why is the man lost in contemplation? Only Sir Anthony van Dyck, could tell us.
