Images of Marwan Kassab-Bachi, Untitled (Das Knie)

A mustachioed, middle-aged man standing against a solid dark terra-cotta background is rendered in loose brushstrokes. While fully clothed, his bare left knee juts out from the side of his hip.
  1. Long This is a painting of a fair-skinned, middle-aged man standing against a brown background. His gaze is directed at the viewer. He is bald and has a mustache and a goatee. He wears a beige turtleneck and bright blue jeans. His right hand is obscured, resting in his pocket, while his left hand hangs in front of him. A bare leg is jutting out from the side of his hip, knee bent.
