    I have to be truthful (as usual). Given that I have a great respect for all the artists, and that my comment is purely subjective, I’d say that I like the works of this painter, are not nudes (produced in abundance), but those paintings that go a little outside the usual images of nudes too popular and commercial. Of the series of paintings referred to above, I prefer to only four, namely: “A Good Read”, “Secluded Cove”, “Hair Like Copper” and “Raising Lazarus.”

    • Vincenzo said

      The painting of the Resurrection of Lazarus is very attractive characterized for its singular scenic setting. The point of view of the entire scene, is placed inside the sepulcher, even after Lazarus, and it fails to engage the viewer, making it more partaker to the extraordinary event. Usually Christian iconography, leads us to imagine seeing this scene from an external point of view, behind Jesus in the painting of Wallis, the reverse happens, and this, in my opinion, makes it more suggestive the scene.
