"The Shaikh" is a testament to pastel's power to portray shadow. The subject’s entire right side is completely black, although admirers insist they see subtle shapes and textures. There is only a subtle white dot to suggest an eye reflection. Anything else that you might see is coming from your imagination. Another fascinating feature of this work is the seemingly incompatible emotions expressed by his mouth and eyes when viewed separately. When viewed as a whole, the intensity and focus of the Shaikh is remarkable… you can almost hear his mind working.
