This is on of my favourite artists. I like how howson chooses very intense emotional subjects to paint. A lot of his work does not look very realistic but it still makes you feel the emotion of the paintingi I love how he shows the pain and suffering of the person throough their body. He shows them with exagerated pertruding bones and veins. He really shows that this person is starving. There is so much detail in howson's work, he seems to make every line perfect.
