In Moonlight the Artist represents a young, naked and exhausted woman fighting with her struggles personified by a scaring and undefined mask overlooking on her.
She’s holding with her left hand a bloody sword and presents a wound on the same side.
The mask is threatening the young lady, watching her steadily and relentlessly.
The lady is desperate, temporarily unable to overcome that sense on deep bewilderment and duress; She tried to kill her fears, but couldn’t!!!
The face expression looks worn by her inner struggles, but nicely made up: she still there to contend and in spite of everything she’ll resist protected ideally by her beauty.
Mainly characterized by a Dramatic theme, the Work stands out for its strong descriptive intensity which generally causes a sincere emotional involvement of the viewer.
