This painting is part of the group: Two Expressive Heads
This characterful portrait of a peasant is one of a pair with 'Head of a Man in Blue' also in the National Gallery collection. Painted boldly, with a restricted palette, they show the influence of Giacomo Francesco Cipper in both subject matter and technique.
