Frued suggested that an artist needs to express the nature of subject by all means and not what he knows and how he can depict them, but my using all the versatility of angle and technique to depict the right tone and expression of the subject under study (23). In under analysis portrait, artist with some distance absorbed the significance of the subject and that is why he was able to paint small, but significant details like fine lines on her forehead, fine lines under her eyes, the curves on her nose, the mole on her cheek, deep in-thought look on her face, and her pouty lips, all well represented with their peculiar details. Artist has infused aesthetic sense of imagery to portray sensory emotional values of the subject. There is a philosophical notion of the subject in choice, it has nothing to do with beauty, value or prestige, but artist’s aim was to highlight the rationality of virtue rather than beauty. Since the cat is not at the focal point therefore, little attention is paid on the details of her being present. It has been painted to show her presence as a comfort on her and her being a pet cat, but nothing more is done to her outline so to signify her. It is only supporting the outline of the old woman with a thoughtful look. “Old lady with a cat” portrait is a fine depiction of how an artist views and paints the viewed reality in a most subtle manner. The work is in flat tones with dominated pale colours used in it. Artist has given less importance on symmetry of the work.
