This work is out of place. It's so naturalistic, and at the same time, it is merely a study, it seems, for an actual statue. It does not feel like a piece that I would expect to find in this collection, until you look at the hallway it lives in from her point of view. She is look along the far right hallway, her gaze seemingly intersecting the top of the Christopher Brown painting 1946. That gaze, comfortable, is encountering the other work that seems so natural, and from that distance, it seems as if it might be a faded photograph. Realism is staring at impressionism, and at the distant she stands, it seems real, true.
