MELLER, Peter

Description

Happiness
Having rapidly set down his first idea with faint indications in pencil, Meller enhanced it by going over them with a marking pen. He added vigor and humor to the characterization by varying the thickness of the lines used to describe the different parts of the womans body. The way in which her necklace hovers in mid-air serves to emphasize the effect of movement but also to add a comic contrast to her ample form. - Eden Slone
