The archer
oil on linen
190 x 170 cm
Further information

The archer presents the figure pausing in a moment of contemplation. The boy, a hunter, stands very still. He is absorbed by his surroundings, aware of all his senses and of his place in the world. The painting presents a paradox; this is a moment of serenity, an acknowledgment of life, but also of mortality before the inevitable moment of the kill.
