Sitting against a brown wall, the woman in this portrait by Jan de Ruth is rendered in a realistic manner that captures the beauty and nerve of the sitter. A Holocaust survivor whose life was entirely dedicated to his art over his lengthy life in the face of indeterminable adversity, the artist's skillful depiction of the model demonstrates her own agency as she holds her shawl loosely and stares back at the viewer.
