Two Young Women in the Snow, Isaac Israels, c. 1890 - c. 1894

panel, h 65cm × w 36cm. More details

An everday scene in Amsterdam in the winter: two warmly dressed factory workers or studio models. Israels painted them as if, during their break, they had briefly, hesitatingly, stopped before him. However, appearances can be deceptive. The pose of both women is carefully considered, and the black and red passages of their shawls and coats are contrasted to create a well-balanced composition, despite looking like the record of a fleeting moment.
