An excellent study for an allegorical composition by Parthenis that condenses and contains all those qualities that make up his attractive visual idiom. With a simple lack of pretense he easily imparts a peculiar magic to the vague misty landscape of a tender dream now endowed with otherworldly accents. In the background the unpretentiously simple figures float in a poetic spiritual atmosphere full of a unique spirit of elegance and lyricism. The figure, the posture, thoughtfully vulnerable and exposed, bereft of recognizable features and a gaze closed to the viewer is reduced to an ode to femininity.
