Sister I, Barbara Stammel, 1998.

Sister I is a frontal portrait of a girl on a white background that gives us no information whatsoever and on which the artist has spattered some drops of paint to give it life. The facture is rapid and the use of large brushstrokes gives it great expressivity. It uses a range of blues and reddish hues contrasting with small lighter touches. The girl’s gaze is fixed and penetrating and becomes enigmatic through the play of light and shade that gives her a serious and pensive expression.
