Nicolai Fechin

Russian painter and draftsman Nicolai Fechin.  I love his vision of the human face and body.  His work is so full of love and grit.  To me these are painfully beautiful pictures.

A portrait of Boris Karloff.  That's right, from the Frankenstein movie.

Alex Kanevsky

Thinking of Alex Kanevsky tonight.  I have no idea how he builds these paintings, and that fascinates me.  In interviews he claims not to really be interested in inventing any new kind of technique.

Vittorio Gussoni (Milano, 1893 - San Remo, 1968)

I became curious about this painter after seeing this painting posted on facebook.  This was the only painting I liked, but I thought it was pretty bold and interesting.  I was disappointed to see the rest.  Maybe this one was a success because he wasn't bothered having to paint the face.
