Annotate a portrait

I went to Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery to look for a suitable painting which I could annotate for this exercise. I came across this work by Peter Tillemans, an artist I had not heard of before, so in just doing this exercise I have already broadened my artistic knowledge and added to the body of artists whose work I am familiar with.

I’m pleased I chose this work, there was not too much information I could find out about the artist or the painting, just a short section on the VADS website. This was good as it forced me to study the painting on my own terms and make up my own mind about it rather than be influenced by what others had written about it.

My annotation can be found here, photos of the original work having been removed for copyright reasons.
