This colorful portrait of a young lady shows Dominic’s extremely recognizable hard lines and bold use of color. The naked figure is portrayed as a modern woman: confident and casually glazing to her right, aware of her position in the fast new world. On the other hand, there is an aureole above her head - indicating she is not only earthly, but divine as well. Both features are unmistakably found in the Christian Madonna, or Maria.
