That is an interesting pose - almost uncomfortable with the idea of being a portrait. I'm not quite sure if I like the whole effect; but it certainly makes you wonder why.

This was Newberry in his 'Rembrandt' period. Lots of shadow, from which figures with depth and three-dimensions emerge into the light.

At life-size that effect is truly stunning.
