F N Souza
Untitled (Emperor)


Drawn over a mathematical worksheet, this portrait of an Emperor is constructed from Souza's characteristic hatched lines, with the typical brow-set eyes. Despite his heavy robe and ruffled collar, the ruler's mask-like visage and vacant expression overshadow any regal associations this portrait might have evoked, offering insight into Souza's reading of human society, particularly the hypocrisy and 'soullessness' of men of wealth and power.
