A lover of self-portraits and still-lifes, Dick Ket is a Dutch painter who spent most of his life as a recluse, creating artwork in his parents’ secluded home. Unfortunately, he died at just 37 years old as a result of deteriorating health from a life-long medical condition. What diagnosis do you think Ket may had have based on his self-portrait? Special thank you to Dr. Courneya (the creator and curator of White Coat Warm Art – a very successful art gallery held every year at CCME) for sending in this painting that she spotted at a gallery abroad!
