Monday Morning Muse: Woman in Black Mantilla

This oil painting by French artist Roland Oudot was gifted to the Mead in 1963. Modern critics consider Oudot “one of the most distinguished members of the group of Painters of the Poetic Reality.” (1) The Painters similarly believed that “painting is not a laboratory experiment but an expression of experience resulting from the link between nature and the life of people.”(2)
