These photo’s

Isaac Israëls selfportrait

Isaac Israëls selfportrait

These two paintings by Isaac Israels, a self portrait and a portrait of his father. Newly cleaned, varnished and framed. Maybe a new back-linen. In those days photography did exist and the pictures taken then show Isaac painting portraits on the beach in Holland and Italy. Why would he paint rather then taking a photo? The lacking of color in black and white photography? Today photography can almost achieve anything, being a medium in itself. Why bother to paint? There is no answer if only there is a translator for the zero’s and ones that enter our mind.
