Jeremy Mann - oil painter

I’ve been following him for a while. Beautiful atmospheric cityscapes and dreamy figurative works, pushing the boundaries of ‘representational’ paintings. 

We’re very fortunate that a film maker Loic Zimmermann has recently posted this superb documentary on YouTube, titled ‘A Solitary Mann’. I just love the tone and texture of the production. 

It’s always great to delve into the mind of artists. Fascinating to hear him talking about Zorn Palette, beauty of colour grey, etc...

You know what? I made an exciting discovery in the film that I don’t think anyone has done. 
Have a look at the scene 15:47. There are many photos of paintings on the studio wall. 
Can you recognise a painting of a nude figure whose right arm is resting on a wooden box?

I think that painting must be ‘Study of a girl, half-nude, leaning on box’ by Hugh Ramsay, an Australian painter and my hero. The painting is now at National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne. 
I don’t know how I can check if this is correct or not. What do you think? Let me know your thoughts.
