Rembrandt's Nose ISBN 1-933045-44-2 / 978-1-933045-44-3 Hardcover, / pgs / / U.S. CDN To be set / Nonfiction and Criticism If the sitter is the lead actor of a performance, for in essence that is what a portrait is, then the nose is his understudy on the stage of the face. The nose stands in the center, the focal point of our gaze if not the exact center, and demands that we notice it. It's a peacockish actor: too obvious, too egotistical, too histrionic. It upstages the rest of the face and would make us forget that its posturing is mere vanity and vacuity compared to the eloquence of the eyes and lips.
