Christina's World

I've always loved this painting. And, recently, we got to see the original at the MoMA in New York. It's painted by Andrew Wyeth.

Can you tell that Christina's figure seems a bit disproportioned? (Look at her hands.) I never knew why. But, the girl in the painting is Christina Olson, a friend of the artist, who was crippled with Polio.

And, although there is a sense of isolation... I still really enjoy looking at it. Don't you?
