though despite her suffering she is almost bestial, and since the scantily clad standing m a n m a y point at something he finds amusing, it is not inconceivable that the artist with one part of his mind is amused also. This painting, eminently analysed by Wolfthal, reveals to us perhaps better than any other picture in her book just h o w cautious w e must be in attributing to the past, and in particular its artists, any such uncomplicated attitudes as w e m a y hold ourselves.
