Full length, life sized portrait of Gert Voorjans in an overcoat, bow tie, bowler, and cane. Standing against a background landscape and stormy sky. A contrasting list of the numbers 1 – 28 runs down the right side.

Oil on canvas. Large format.

The canvas is stretched using a gallery wrap technique. Framed in a 2-part frame – a narrow floater frame in white that directly surrounds and offsets the painting, and a wider rusticated frame that mirrors the textures found in the painting.

On the reverse, the canvas is signed ‘Nils Verkaeren’, dated ‘2012’, and annotated ‘No. 0’.

A large, expressive, evocative and colorful painting. Unmistakably modern, yet filled with a sense of a bygone era.
