‘Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog’

date : 1982

size : 3 feet x 2 feet

medium : oil.

notes : One of the few surviving early works, this is a self-portrait in the manner of later Jones self-portraits, which take the subject as theme, expressed in oblique form.

comment : “James Joyce, Dylan Thomas, and me. Self-portraits with a twist; I took the book title literally, and was there … a red dog”.
