She Blends with the Background – Woman in a Green Hat by Paul Cezanne

Woman in a Green Hat by Paul Cezanne

She blends with the background, the woman in green.

Her hat placed on the top of her head covers the shiny metallic tones of her hair. Her dress, made of symmetrical folds, covers her body from neck to toe.

She blends with the background, the woman with green eyes. Innocently preoccupied, she stares into space, unaware of the spectacle she offers. The back of the chair and the walls form a greenish palette where olive, mint, teal, myrtle and pistachio greens entwine gracefully.

She blends with the background, the woman with her hands crossed. Nonchalantly sitting, her right elbow resting on the armchair, with the fragility of a leaf and the sternness of a tree, the woman in green stares into space.
