The tempest by Oskar Kokoschka is an oil on canvas done in 1914. This painting drew my attention my the softness of the brushstrokes, and how different the man and the woman look from each other. The woman is done with a lot of detail and she looks realistic. The man on the other hand, is rough and looks almost dead or like a ghost. The image is thought provoking in that the viewer wonders what the relationship is, and why is has a sad and lonely feel to it.
