I reckon this is a bloody good picture. It took my eye in the National Gallery Magazine. It’s by Tobias Koster and most of the background is missing – which is a long strip to the right and left of the market in which one presumes the subject of the painting works. Tobias is from St Leonard’s College (so he’s in year 12 or younger).
The face seems to have the pride and health of a life well lived.
