Beautiful Paintings by Francesco Clemente

I came across the artist Francesco Clemente in the December issue of Vogue. I looked online to see more of his artwork and found the painting shown above. There is something so unique and beautiful about the way he paints the faces. I love the way he exaggerates the eyes, especially on the painting below.

It makes me want to take a painting class.... Maybe in another life.

I would love to see his book although it received terrible reviews thanks to the layout of the artwork. Sounds like the book binding runs through most of the paintings. You'd think at that price they would get it right.
