Image coming soon.

Altoon Sultan blogs about the tactility in early American portrait painting.

Sultan writes: "There is a quality in early American painting, especially seen in portraits, that fascinates me and elucidates my own work. In these works there is a precise rendering of form using quietly descriptive paint; the form is magically tactile, becoming the thing rather than simply representing it."
