Title
Woman Crying
Description
Composition in blue tones, black, earthy, green, lilac, ochre and rose. Smooth texture and marked brushstrokes. Half-length front woman with long hair covering her face and head in his hands, occupying almost the entire stand area. The figure seems to be sitting, hunched, his elbows resting on the legs; have your arms in front of the body and hands together with fingers crossed resting his forehead in prayer position. Black, smooth and long hair covering his face leaving a glimpse of the nose and mouth. Wears blouse in blue seeing a part of the striped skirt of blue and black. Broad shoulders, arms and hands depicted with anatomical deformity accentuate the expressiveness of the figure, as well as the strong tones that contrast with the background geometrized in pastel shades of blue, green, lilac and ochre.
