Eva Frankfurther artist (1930-1959)

Beggar Woman

(private collection)

description A full-length lithographic portrait of a seated, elderly beggar woman with covered head, positioned in front of a closed gate in Whitechapel, either resting or begging for alms. Her body is hunched forward and her expression troubled. On the ground by her feet is a small cup, perhaps intended for donations. The composition and pose are similar to those of the elderly woman in the oil 'Homeless'.
