Only great portrait artists can both convey the appearance of their models and reveal their psychology. When the artist depicts a model at the landscape background, especially the architectural one, it always makes you think much what a human being is and how the environment influences us. A middle-aged man with a swarthy skin, light gray hair, a tenacious and intelligent glance is depicted on the background of a southern seaside town. Looking at his face, we want to guess his thoughts, profession, imagine his way of life and even, perhaps, compare with ours.
