Hans Holbein

Hans Holbein was one of the greatest portrait painters of Europe. But, God his subjects were homely. Perhaps most of them were Dutch. I lived in Belgium for four years and I have to say that these same faces appear everywhere you go. And they are not pretty. But… they are honest. Straight forward. And they are amused as much by their own short comings as they are by the fate of man in the world. It is this courage that you see so often on the canvas. It says ‘this is who I am. Accept me.’

Its always fun to look at Magritte’s work again. One thing about Magritte is that everything is neat. Tidy. I wonder if that is because he is Belgian. The Belgians do like a good laugh, a real tongue in the cheek countraire.

One of the first things I’m attracted to in collage is humor. A lot of it is satire. Some of it is ‘sticking your tongue out at the teacher’.
