Woman at a Mirror

The impeccably groomed young woman glances up questioningly at an older woman in dark clothing. The lady’s facial expression is clear to see in the mirror before her. The painter has imbued the scene with deeper meaning, for the mirror signifies vanity and the transience of life. The message conveyed here is that beauty and youth will ultimately fade.
