Francesca was recently at the Guggenheim museum in Manhattan and was captivated by this painting, Woman With Yellow Hair, by the Picasso:
Francesca is not the only one. Apparently the poster print of this painting is one of the best-selling ones at the museum gift shop.
Francesca visited the museum with her cousin, and she asked him: do you think the woman is sleeping, or crying? He says sleeping, and Francesca agrees, but she thinks maybe, maybe the woman is feeling sad. This is what touches Francesca about the work, that it evokes peacefulness, but also exhaustion and a teeny touch of depression, at the same time.
What say you?
