The green stockings
A sensual painting in luminescent jade green and orange hues. Showing only her back, the woman allows the observer to enter the picture and to join her on the bed. Though the voluptuous buttocks and thighs give the impression of strength and permissiveness, the smallness of the upper body and the tilt of the head tell another story. Putting the cool green in juxtaposition with fiery orange the artist catches the hidden conflict between head and body and solves it by putting green stockings on the woman’s feet.
