‘Woman lends a very special atmosphere to a painting. Though she may be reduced to a tiny part of the scene playing her plastic role in the composition as do other elements, she draws attention to herself and becomes the centre of the composition, while being simultaneously an integral part of the architecture of the painting.’ -Paul Delvaux
