Ritika, I am fascinated by the characters in this painting. I see an amalgamation of melancholy and exhaustion. The pensive woman, perhaps also the immediate focus of the audience’s attention, wears a disinterested or disconnected expression that could blend in with the crowd. However, her reflection in the window has her eyes clearly focused on the viewer. Perhaps from the outside, as an omniscient audience, we are actually able to see her inside in the reflection. Who or where did you derive your inspiration from for this piece?
