Comment
確かな観察眼と描写力、そして卓越したメゾチントの技術により、現代の人物像を描くことで広く知られています。この作品も、絵画空間の独自性と芸術性に対する厳しい追求を見て取ることができます。私は、彼の作品の本質的魅力は、芸術の高尚な精神、いわば“integrity”を湛えていることにあるのだと思います。

Pasternak is known for his finely observed portraits produced through his excellent mezzotint skills. The beauty that resides within the essence of his works expresses a sophisticated spirit and integrity of aesthetic.
