In this portrait, the artist is looking for parallels between a human and a plant. The woman’s image embodies the search for the qualities symbolically related to plants – freedom and the ability to unfold. The classical structure of the painting and the three-quarter-angle allude to a dialogue with the tradition of the portrait genre.
