Eva Frankfurther artist (1930-1959)

Young Woman with Sleeping Baby

(private collection)

description A half-length portrait of a young, black-haired woman, seen in three quarter face view with her head turned to the right and her eyes turned away from those of the viewer as she cradles a sleeping infant, wrapped in a white blanket. Frankfurther treats this subject with her usual tenderness, focusing on the two heads and the implied intimate relationship between mother and child. The delicate complexions of both woman and child are painted with particular care, and the woman's pale orange dress, overlaid with white, is reflected in the colouring of the backdrop behind her.
