Eva Frankfurther artist (1930-1959)

Woman with Roses

(private collection)

description A head-and-shoulders portrait of a young woman, seen in full face view, her hair is pulled back away from her face, her large eyes are serious and she holds a bouquet of roses in front of her. The drawing is deeply worked with strong areas of shading. The woman's tentative expression, as well as the delicate fabric of her dress, suggests an affinity with Frankfurther's series of works depicting young brides.
