Martin C. Herbst is an Austrian painter, whose work focuses on an elaborate reevaluation of art historical themes and theories of classical portraiture and human figures. His “subjects” are individual but at the same time portray the best work of their epochs. The traditional intent to display the distinctive likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person is combined with witty and often unexpected forms of representation. They are distorted when painted on curved panels, but look “normal” if the viewer perceives them from a certain point of view. For more unique work check out his website.
