Description
Caught up in a conflict between the principles of the Munich Academy and the new teachings on entering more deeply into the meaning of colour and daring in rendering it, Vikatos is often liberated from the static stiffness of the Academy in giving movement to the composition, as is the case with Portrait of an Old Woman.
