"Verdonck" after Frans Hals"
"This is Verdonck, the brazen fellow,
Whose jawbone assails one and all.
He cares for none, neither great or small,
And thus to the workhouse was sent."
I love Frans Hals and this one is a portrait of his. A rough contemporary of Rembrandt, I like the way he painted common people, some less than common people like Verdonck, some of the strange folks of Haarlem like Malle Babba and Her Owl, who I also painted, and more. I love his bold manner and strokes, like his admirer van Gogh, but 200 years earlier.
