Notes: In Klaus Rohrandts opinion the sitter resembles Trübners painting student Ulla Marx. The present portrait is a typical portrait from the artists mature period. The first impression of a certain rigidity of expression is counterbalanced by the deliberate emphasis on the eyes, mouth and hair, whose significance as 'erogenous zones', thus a symbol of the instinctive, is decisively emphasized by Klaus Rohrandt in his expert opinion.
