The Broken Pitcher

This famous painting found at the SF Legion of Honor is a detail by William-Adolphe Bouguereau. The complete work painted in 1891 shows a symbolic context for the young girl's sad expression. A broken pitcher represents her loss of virginity. The well pump is the male figure.

My composition is pastel on a tinted ground.
