Color insert from a private photograph of the 1986 exhibition.

This contemplative genre painting is one of a series of portraits of girls, all done around 1900, that treat religious subjects and were created in a "user-friendly" (i.e., rather smaller) format. The painting has unfortunately been lost since the 1986 exhibition.
