An abstract expressionist, Alexj Jawlensky achieved prominence in the art world through his painting of faces, mostly of friends and women. He grew up during difficult ties and was expelled from Germany during 1914 whereupon he moved to Switzerland to continue his painting lifestyle. The faces painted by Mr. Jawlensky often have haunting eyes, prominent noses and a variety of colors highlighting various facial features. His work is worth examination and is somewhat reminiscent of the Picasso school of abstract art.
Awestruck (shown above) was painted using a fine 2014 Picpoul De Pinet Cuvee Prestige from Picpol De Pinet in France.
