Painting • Portrait
Victor Kalin was prolific and versatile. He was comfortable
in all media, including watercolor, gouche, woodcut, pen
and ink, oil, pastel. He made portraits of people he admired
-- with the exception of Richard Nixon. As an outspoken opponent of the Vietnam War, he crosshatched Nixon, aimng to personify dishonesty and trickiness.
