Pierrot, named here not as the archetypal white faced pantomime character who loses his love to Harlequin, but as a more proud personage redolent of Darius, the great Persian king, maybe one of his regional governors. This strong faced character is so wonderfully portrayed in this oil painting that it could almost be a fresco lifted from an ancient temple, both in technique and rendering. This is one of Berlins series of Fools painted in the 1990's.
