George Henry Yewell - Figure

George Henry Yewell (1830-1923), American
Figure, 1866
OIL ON CANVAS, 15 ½ x 9 ½ inches
Gift of Mrs. Theodora Willard Best

Lost in thought, George Yewell's young (probably Italian) peas­ant woman at a fountain seems to contemplate her fate. Her strap has fallen off her shoulder suggesting either lost innocence or listless indifference. That her pot is not even under the flow of water emphasizes her absorption in thought, rather than attention to her chore.
