This portrait was inspired by observing the subject sitting quietly under a lamp one winter’s evening, reading.
The scene brought to mind the serenity and timelessness of a bygone era where literature and the appreciation of art, fine words and philosophy were lauded pastimes. This little portrait deserved a suitably evocative title which can be interpreted as referring to either the book or the sitter himself.
Reading Tolstoy received a Highly Commended award at the Sydney Royal 2011.
Original sold at exhibition, causing such interest that limited edition fine art prints were produced by request.
