Anthony Quinn self-portrait

Irish-Mexican actor Anthony Quinn (1915-2001) is known for his many awesome films such as La Strada (1954), Zorba The Greek (1964), Laurence of Arabia (1962) etc. Other than being an actor, he was also a painter. This is what he had to say about his art and self-portrait:
“Painting the face as a picture is not difficult. It’s rather easy. But to paint the essence of what that face is or what it represents to me- that’s going to be the next step”.
I am not the author of this image. All rights go to Anthony Quinn.
