Lithography on Paper

I was immediately drawn to this piece just by its shear size. I’m not sure if this is suppose to be someone in specific but it is a wonderfully done piece. It has a sort of a 1940’s era feel to it with the man having a flattop hat and his style of suit. I like the presence it has, which is dramatically done by the fact it colorless and its vast size. The facets of the suit and his face are very well done. This piece has some mystery to it because of its monotonous lines. I stood in front of the piece for quite a while, questioning and trying to rationalize whom it could be. Also, I wondered how one would create a piece of its size. It would be really interesting to how it came to be.
