sometimes when I look at this dag, the subtle blue of his necktie sticks out but then at second glance I see the great sharpness in his eyes. The best executed dags can be simple like this sixth plate and really give off the true essence of the sitter. This man, with light touches of red rouge on his face, looks as if he is about to speak. I will let you all now look at him in this regard, and see what he says to you. The original gilded gold patterned case has a repaired spine and wonderful purple pillow on the inside works nicely with his tie coloring.
