The painting is based around a woman looking away from the viewer in front of what looks like a glass door. The lines formed by the woman's clothing and the lines on the door behind her add a sense of texture to her and her surroundings. The warm colors make the image feel dramatic and emotionally charged.
The artist seems to want the viewer to feel almost a feeling of embrasement from the girl looking away and the warm colors. This piece was made around the time of Van Gogh and the post-impresssionist era. If I had the money I probably would buy this because it's use of colors and texture seems like it would compliment my house.
