More thoughts on Manchester

In my comments on Manchester galleries I somehow missed this one, Head of a girl by Albert Lynch. One of the most beautiful portraits I have seen. I don’t remember her from before, so whether she was on display I don’t know. Portraiture often fails to grab me, but this girl, hanging in the main old staircase stopped me in my tracks. She is beautiful and you just can’t ignore her. I wish I could paint like this.
