Painted with bold, expressive lines in a sombre palette, this portrait of an unknown woman exudes a quiet melancholy. The figure has a weighty, monumental quality typical of Adler’s work. Adler came from a large, orthodox Jewish family in Lodz, Poland and considered becoming a rabbi. After studying in Poland and Germany, he settled in Düsseldorf in 1922, where his work was influenced by Paul Klee.
