‘Van Nazareth’s representation of the human figure – and in particular the human face – makes us conscious again that we are confronted with multiple perspectives. This multiplicity may be the result of various insights into the human condition, although it might well be coloured with the emotional tone of a specific condition in the artist’s life: his personal or compassionate involvement with the events around him’.1 Says Van Nazareth: ‘Art is nothing but learning to see’.2
