Set in the foothills of a remote village in Azerbaijan, this charming modern-day fairytale focuses on Buta, an orphaned boy who lives with his Grandmother. Curious and sweet, he spends his days happily roaming the countryside. When local bullies force Buta to defend the honor of a friend, he reacts and embarks on his journey toward adulthood.
The exhibition “Look At Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection” examined portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shaped a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.
This life-size portrait of a girl is a fine example of the British art of portrait painting in the early 18th century. The child is shown posing on a terrace, which is enclosed at the right foreground by the plinth of a pillar; the background is mainly filled with trees and shrubs.
