A photorealistic portrait painting of young girl with blonde hair and blue eyes looking directly at the viewer. She has a solemn facial expression, and the left quarter side of her face is darkened by shadow. Her face is very close to the foreground, making it large and somewhat confrontational. The background is completely black.
Born in 1948, Austrian artist Gottfried Helnwein studied at the University of Visual Art in Vienna.
