Essay
Portraits by Lotte Laserstein are particularly captivating for their closeness of observation. Additionally, a special lighting, in this case an indirect light, adds a certain light-flooded aura to this portrait. The dynamic and immediate effect is achieved by the lateral view, which is characteristic of all her portraits. In order to add structure to the smooth stroke of the brush, the priming has a slightly pastose texture, which stimulates the portrait and adds the very briskness from which it benefits so much.
