Paul sits, outdoors, in a garden, leaning slightly awkwardly forward, his arms resting on a table. His face pensive, his eyes piercing and engaging the viewer: drawing the observer into his world. It is said that the mark of a good portrait is that the eyes follow you around the room - this work achieves far more than this, they almost seem to burn into your soul; you imagine they can follow you through solid walls.
His expression, so beautifully rendered, runs the full gammed of emotions. At times philosophical, sometimes playful, always questioning. What is Paul thinking? Since Da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa has any smile been more enigmatic than this? Perhaps in a reference to Michelangelo's David, another work depicting the perfection of the male form, his hands, clasped together fingers interlocked, seem strangely out of proportion, reinforcing the exaggerated perspective of the portrait.
The philosophical, reflective nature of the picture is reinforced in a visual pun by the physical reflection of Paul in the steel table. In a haunting but so contemporary nod to the memento mori of the old masters a glass of water sits at Paul's left side. Is the glass half empty or half full? That is left for the viewer to decide.
It is easy to scratch the surface of such a complex and deep work but it will be for scholars of the future to divine its true meaning. Me, I like to think that Paul is contemplating his brother's fall from grace, torn between schadenfreude and the fear that he might never work again.
For 10 long years my wife and I have been together. We have a good life. Comfortable income, a nice house, but our lives have been tragically empty as we're unable to conceive a child. We've sought medical advice from some of the finest clinicians money can buy, been to Eastern European countries with questionable legality, but never have we heard those magic words. `Congratulations, you're pregnant'.
Three days ago we saw this picture, and as so many on here have done, we had to have it. It arrived yesterday, and was immediately hung over our bed. Last night, with the kind moon face of Paul looking down and blessing us, we made love all night long, as he wanted us to.
This morning my wife has already been sick three times, and has just confirmed that she felt little kicks inside her. Thanks Paul. We owe you one.
Paul Ross ''the boss'' is a British institution, one of the most influential people from the past hundred or so years, I have always known that, and I am completely satisfied with this beautiful item. I have bought multiple copies for every room of my house, for not only do they compliment any home, they also make the most interesting talking piece whenever you're (all to clearly envious) friends and family come around for cup of tea and a stare. To be honest, my first canvas print has it's own chair. Paul Ross - you lad!
Well, as I started work, I could swear that Paul was starting to move INSIDE the painting. I laughed this off immediately, blaming the fumes from the varnish remover; however, as it happened, I should not have laughed, for then Paul spoke and said:
"I am Paul, the Scourge of Carpathia, the Sorrow of Moldavia.
On a mountain of skulls, in the castle of pain, I sat on a throne of blood.
What was will be; What is will be no more.
Now is the season of evil!".
Then something about bringing him a child so that he may be reborn or something to that effect. Frankly I can't remember his exact chilling words as I had just done a huge bum chunder, and then ran screaming from the museum. I took my baby son Oscar and left New York for good.
Buy this exquisitely made (from hard wearing materials) print at your own risk.
