More Information

The expressive lines and proportions in this drawing reflect the emotional connection Robinson feels with the figures she creates. The delicate texture of the drawing paper and lines of purple dye visible throughout (Robinson learned to make paper and dyes from her father) enhance the dreamy quality of the image.
