Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas, Wood.

I have painted Alfred Schopenhauer with one of his pet Poodles.

Schopenhauer had a difficult relationship with other people, and in his latter 27 years of his life, preferred the company of his pet poodle, Atman. Or to be more precise, a series of poodles, all called Atman.

In what I like to think of as a piece of German philosophical humour, Atman is the Sanskrit word for the ‘true self’, something that he searched for, through his writings, for his entire life.
