Old Man #1
About this artwork
Inspired by the 1903 book Sundial Mottoes, artist Matson Ambroise illustrates a man with a long, white beard and weathered features. Applying thick gestural layers, they create dynamic textures that reveal portions of the lighter background. The lower right side of the composition features a faint pencil inscription that reads, Look Upon Me. Though Silent, I Speak. For the Happy and the Sad, I Mark the House Alike. I Warn as I Move. I Steal Upon You. I Wait for None. The painting comes with an unlacquered brass frame.
