A shrouded female figure sits holding her head in apparent grief. Her face is hidden from view, but we know by the attitude of her head and body that she is in emotional pain.
Compare this lithograph to Rockwell Kent’s And Women Must Weep (1937). How are the depictions of grief different? What does each artist choose to emphasize?
