An exotic subject with an unnatural angularity and stark simplicity, the figure is captured with a sense of strength in her austere features. Carrying a pair of large water vessels like they are weightless, each positioned loosely in the crook of her arms with only a thin draped towel for cover, her eyes are closed in quiet meditation with her palms are raised slightly toward the sky.

Louise Allen Hobbs was born in Lowell, Massachusetts and studied at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence and the School of Boston Museum of Fine Arts. While completing this work she lived at 9 Copley Studios, Boston, Massachusetts.
