"Unimpressed"

9 x 12"

I mostly love the young woman's form in this painting - the slumped over posture, the weight on her arm, the strands of hair falling forward. She is seemingly unimpressed with the painting before her, done by the modernist Marsden Hartley, titled "Madawaska-Acadian Light-Heavy", which hangs in the Art Institute of Chicago.

A big thank-you to Anne B. for helping me identify the painting on the wall in front of the woman.
