haydn reloaded II – a modern painter’s view

Maybe you ask yourself, what kind of portrait should this be?
The Austrian painter Andreas Roseneder (alias “René Desor”, here his blog) was in search of clues to between Haydn’s and today’s “affecting” surrounding –  after numerous visits at the Esterházy Castle in Eisenstadt with his Leica.  His new artworks are the result of a 2 years research about Haydn and the people and faces around him: a contemporary view in brilliant artwork quality, made with the newest materials (the paintings here are made with a special kind of acrylic and vinylic colors).
If you visit Esterházy Castle have a look at the “visages” up at the wall of the Castle and courtyard there!

You feel encircled by curious, funny faces that make grimaces and all are different! Already Joseph Haydn was surrounded by this grimaces when he lived and worked there for 30 years. Andreas Roseneder was inspired by those faces,  remarkable characters to his “haydn_ sketch series”.
(more about the “haydn _portrait series”, the “haydn_muses series” of Andreas Roseneder soon!)
