Grandmother and Granddaughter. 1973 yr.
The vertical portrait represents two female images - the elderly oriental woman with half-closed eyes stately overtops. She has white dress and kerchief, and a blue camisole, her dark skin contrasts sharply with the snow-white fabric of the apparel. The worn out hands with bracelets and rings carefully hold the girl of five years sitting in her lap in a bright yellow dress, with orange bows in pigtails, who with curiosity peeps out from grandmother's embrace.
