Concubine by O. Petrides

concubine by o. petrides
I thought about a lot about what to post on this last day of the year. In approximately 7 hours my time, a new year, 2009 will begin.

Women suffered a lot in the Middle East and they still are. O. Petrides's Concubine, a water color on paper shows a long gone era. You can see, or rather feel her solitude, loneliness, and her grace in spite of all the luxury around. I sincerely wish the women of the region a happy 2009. Same to you, all.
Dated 1921.

Dimensions: 25.5x19 cm.
