Foundation purchase, Phyllis C. Wattis Fund for Major Accessions
A young Asian woman, wearing a traditional jacket with flowers and butterflies, engages the viewer with her gaze. In the background is a water landscape with a subtle reference to a sinking boat. The main colors are red, celadon, lavender, brown and orange. The image is appropriated from an early 20th century photo book of prostitutes.
