Women Dressing 5/12



This monochromatic horizontal composition in depicts five human figures in various states of motion against a natural looking background. Four are in the foreground, with a figure sitting in the on the ground on the left and behind the other figures. The figures all appear to be female, naked and in the state of either dressing or undressing. The figure on the far left foreground is standing, with her back to the viewer and her left leg pointed. The next figure standing second from left is facing forward and bent at the waist. The standing figure, second from the right, also has her back to the viewer. The fourth standing figure, farthest to the right, is facing the viewer, with her arms above her head and one leg bent. On the left side of the image, there are round, organic forms resembling bushes. The bottom of the image contains crosshatching in small patches, as well as round contour-lines, with the lower right corner being the darkest area. The upper portion of the background is a lighter gray, and a darker form which may be a tree appears behind the group at the upper left.
