This is very powerful and compelling portrait.

The combination of light blue eyes and dark skin is quite disconcerting although totally rivetting as well.

Do you think that he was using stage make-up or was that really his natural complexion?

Riveting, and maybe a little crazed subject, but makes a successful impact as a portrait! Hans, the medallion on his forehead is like a third eye. Perhaps that was his intent!

Ann, the blue eyes are real, the rest is make up.
