Provenance: Purchased from Forum Gallery, New York, NY. Note: From Forum Gallerys Exhibition of Bauers works, Robert Bauers realist portraits are most often of family and friends and are noted for their sensitive and introspective portrayals. There is a palpable sense of life in each of these intimate works, stemming from Bauers lengthy painting process and keen attention to subtle detail. These contemplative and pensive faces are drawn directly from the subject as well as from pencil studies and photographs. Themes of chance, choice and control are deeply a part of the artists work.

Artist: Bauer, Robert
