Christinas World

This is Andrew Wyteh's "Christina's World", it is tempera on panel done in 1948. The woman in the picture, Christina, had polio and would crawl around the grounds of the farm. The painting is asymmetrically balanced, and was done in egg tempera a medium that makes an artist constantly mix and monitor their paint. There is great detail in the strokes in the grass.
