1950's, Paris School, 'The Seamstress'

A frou-frou of a 1950's, French, expressionist painting. The seamstress in her cyan blouse is concentrating, head bent, on the sewing in her lap. Her abundant petticoat frills out around her politely crossed legs. The paint strokes in this piece are extraordinarily fluid and immediate, painted with vigour and joy.

Styled here with a Dior underskirt. NFS.
