Shadows is truly a masterful piece of lithography.
Authouart's technical expertise has never been more evident than in this exciting study of light - Shadows.
With all that is special about Authouart - his cleverness, his ability to tell a story with pictures, his ability to make a statement on canvas, always able to see the big picture - we sometimes lose sight of what a great technician he really is.
The interplay of light in this image is brilliance. In the seedy innards of this diner, as shadows cast themselves emphatically on the patrons, do they also cast shadows of doubt? Long a fan of the detective movie, Authouart has captured the essence of film noire and the entire detective genre here.
