Artist's description:

The person depicted is my aunt, Ersilia. I wanted to go beyond the memory I had of her, an old lady of 90 years. I did fantasies about her life. Of course, when she was a child, she has been the delight of his parents. At 20 he was a very beautiful woman who has tasted love. He had a working life. Then came the period of old age, the decline. These are the normal stages of a normal life. When we see an older person, usually we not think of all this. We are conditioned by his present appearance, we do not think about what they were. Older people bring these experiences within, they are something more than the old shell that we see.
