    Clearly, the subtext reads: "Workers of the world, unite!"

    Nice period look in the early years of the Industrial Revolution.

    There's a documentary series called "The Shock of the New" and it dealt with all the sudden changes that were suddenly in existence and how it related to what was going on in the world, how one thing influenced another and a heavy focus on industry, art and design and their relationship. Great series. You might like it. Seems its available for free now.

    Good one, Albert. Simple and to the point. I can even see (though it may not have been intended) some pain on the worker's face.

    Exactly............. That youtube is the sort of stuff I used to watch when I used to watch TV many years ago.

    That's why I called it ...the worker..... workers experience pain.

    Very interesting! A late Picasso going back to merge with his starting drawing and with his cubist phase styles or a grown Mirň going elegantly in black and white.
    With some humor it may even look as a modern representation of Pulcinella, if you know who I mean ... otherwise look herebelow.

    Thanks.... I have to rethink about all the old masters. The internet has changed everything with the digital age.

    You certainly should be happy at how this turned out. It is simplistic but it does draw the eye to see it and look at it.

    Greetings Albert

    I'm fascinated at how much expression you achieve on such a minimalist fragmented face. I see pain, I can almost "hear" the subject gulping from discomfort. This face is like a big bold black&white dismay smiley. Very effective at that. Beautifully.

    This really reminds me of Miró, too. And I love Miró's work.
