Eva Frankfurther artist (1930-1959)

Village Priest, Greece, 1958

(private collection)

description A half-length portrait drawing of a Greek Orthodox priest, seen in three quarter face view, his head turned slightly to the left. He wears the traditional Kalimavkion hat and black robes with a cross highly visible on his chest, and his arms folded in front of him. The artist has focused on the sitter's face and upper body, leaving the hands and arms more lightly sketched in. The title is the artist's own and the drawing dates from Frankfurther's visit to Greece in 1958.
