Description

Provincetown trained artist Doris Hall was married to artist Kalman Kubinyi, with whom she studied printmaking at the Cleveland Institute of Art. This Symbolist lithograph evokes the lithographs of Odilon Redon with its intense blacks and whites, as well as the Japanese theory of Notan. Hall is best known for her enamel works, on which she collaborated with her husband.

The white calla lily was originally associated with the Greek goddess Hera and is named after the Greek word for beauty. The lily in the right foreground of this composition also symbolizes purity and innocence and can also be used to symbolize weddings and funerals. At the left of the composition is a profile in black, which appears to be inhaling the fragrance.
