Alfred Brendel, 2005

This is a portrait of Alfred Brendel by Tony Bevan. The artist purposely tries to force our eyes into focusing on Alfred's face and only his face. The red lines that appear on Alfred map out his unique facial features. The bold area at the bottom of the portrait serves to intensify the presence of the subject. Overall, this is a memorable piece and it teaches us ways to capture the attention of the viewer.
