ABOUT THE ARTWORK
Professor Dumbledore is engulfed in a crowded world of memories. Depicted prominently as the avuncular, twinkling-eyed, benevolent figure, Stuart's portrayal of the character in this painting is all the more significant.
Darkness dominates with the occasional glimmer of light- the true story of his life is written on his steely gaze and determined stance. The pathways implied in this piece represent a convergence of past and present, a theme central to the relationship between Harry Potter and Professor Dumbledore.
