The sheet, blows about in the breeze, clinging to the women’s feminine form showing he delightful figure, just a pair of shapely legs on view in a pair of black stiletto heels (although who wears heels to hang out thier washing? Far too much hassle).
The background is stark with just a blue sky, the ground and the shadow cast, which is almost reminiscent to a Bull fighters pose, with then strong dramatic stance and holding the cape which would hide the dagger.
I really like the flow of this piece with the alomost dance like movements and the fluidity of the poise of the women through and her revealed shape.
There is a strong sense of femininity in this piece, the way in which the women is portrayed is still highly sexual even in everyday chores.
Fernandez has a series of work which if you’re as taken with this painting as I am, you can view here.
