Evening, 1897, oil on canvas by Jakub Schikaneder, Czechoslovakian, 1907-1909.
The lone woman studies her clasped hands and sits alone outside the gleam of the lamp with its light cast on an empty chair. A coat is visible so her husband is either away or has died. Evening is the time when work ceases and thoughts take its place. This artist can break your heart — with paint.
This painting is in the National Gallery in Prague, Czechoslovakia.
