This is a beautiful portrait of the highest quality depicting a Spanish lady (Maja). It’s an oil painting on ceramic tile signed on the back and mounted on a gilt wood frame. The work is marked by bold colors and incorporated elements of Fauvism and Impressionism.
I took off petal after petal, as if you were a rose,
in order to see your soul,
and I didn’t see it.
However, everything around
-horizons of fields and oceans-
everything, even what was infinite,
was filled with a perfume,
immense and living.
