Young Girl Knitting in the Garden, by Alice Cathalifassi; watercolor and graphite on paper

This highly intimate view of a young woman in a garden is inspired by the post impressionist movement, with a loose and airy composition that is filled with light and transparency. The flat strokes of color contrast with the delicate lines of her face, as well as the soft folds of her voluminous skirt.

Commentary

"The intimate portrait of a young woman knitting in a a lush garden is delicate and wonderfully contrasted in tonalities. The broad brushstrokes of luminous hues add transparency and movement to the composition, and the soft features of the seated figure convey a sense of innocence and nostalgia."
