    1. You’ve raised what I consider the most interesting question, Mary-Ann. My initial take was that it was an androgynous portrait of a man… and to me, the subject recalls the well-known portrait of Isaac Newton.

      But everyone else seems to feel this is a woman.

      So I’m not sure… and perhaps that’s the intention. Equally inscrutable is the subject’s expression– a compelling sadness.
