Adomas Jacovskis is a distinctive personality in the Lithuanian ART world. What struck me first was the emotive originality of his invariably sad portraits. With moderate use of cold black and warm black colour variations and the addition of warm ochre and English red shades he creates a peculiar portrait painting by minimal means. In this way Adomas Jacovskis expresses subjective reality and creates of a suggestive character of the portrayed person. His particular merit is in very expressive original drawing. He does not caricature the subject and one won't find a superficial grotesque either. Sadness and tragedy travel from picture to picture. In essence, the portraits by Jacovskis are reminiscent of those by Modigliani.
