“Aleftina and Her Dolls (Version B)” – Cesare Catania – Contemporary Painting
Dimensions: 60 cm x 55 cm
Tecnique: Crayon and acrylic on paper
During a visit at a friend’s house in the Provencal countryside, the contemporary artist is struck by the vivacity of a little girl named Aleftina. The little girl is the protagonist of this painting, which depicts her whilst she is playing with her dolls and her dolls are playing with her. The scene is very lively. Aleftina is so immersed in her own world that from this painting it is difficult to distinguish her from the dolls.
