Home Farm label on reverse with title Paul Berlin April 1961, artist Sven Berlin 175gns.

 

This powerful portrait is a surprisingly bold depiction of Berlin’s sensitive son Paul who eventually became a teacher of philosophy, having studied music and trained in forestry. Painted in 1961 at Home Farm, it has captured a wistful thoughtfulness.
