Very effective stylization of the attractive woman, absorbed in her sewing. Nice flowing purple cloth leading into the distance. Quite different, and somehow the same, as this woman resting from her sewing in a sunny garden, painted by American impressionist artist Frederick Carl Frieseke, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8DP6G8. The painting can be seen at wahooart.com, and ordered as a canvas print.
