Masterpiece Monday #6: Unknown

I don't know who did this but I love it! I love how the man contrasts his background. I think it not only draws your eye to him, but really sets the attitude of the picture. I know that setting up your main image in the center of the picture is considered bad draftsmanship but there are times and paintings that breaking the rule produces a great image. I think this is one time.
