Absolutely stunning portrait. I think I saw this a while ago. Where is it originally from?

This is a very famous photograph taken during the depression.

Andrew Stanford
Sums up the depression era in so man ways, amazing photograph.

Karen Colville
This is one of my faves ever! Great portraiture depth in character.

Dorothea Lange was one of several photo-journalists emplyed by the Farm Security Administration (FSA) in the 1930s and 40s as a documentary project on rural poverty. I seem to recall he goal was to "introduce America to Americans".

Tam Baker
I see women like her on the streets in my city. Talk about the depression era!

Leatrice Kerr
@Tam Baker nothing really changes does it?

Ur right I think! Quite apart from the evidence of suffering on her face, there is also a beauty in this woman's resilience. Life is a struggle, but the human spirit is hard to break.

Makes you think... deciding to give up or keep trying is one of the toughest decisions in our lives. Interesting piece.

Paul Whiteley
One of the many great portraits made by Dorothea Lange, this one said it all about these migrant workers.

So 'Grapes of Wrath' I believe the woman in the photo said "I'm as tired when I get up in the morning as I am when I go to bed at night."

All these Art Emperors live based on the death Artist’s Legacies with no doubt. While the Artist is alive, even they don't accept his/her call in any time. Please don’t give me wrong. you can test them yourselves. Mail them for a review or exhibition of your artworks, you will find your applications in a trashcan quite soon. They live in nice mansions or a House of Art with proudly call Art Galleries/Museums and the artists are suffering of poverty and struggling to pay the bills to live. Well. That kind of artist will be very lucky if he/she sells some paintings to those Emperors/Art Collectors, and they call him/her back in 5 to ten years if he/she is still alive or death. The good news will be if he/she is death to make some money but tons of money. They take your paintings and make their own stories about them and make them as an iconic painting and that is the time that their lottery matches for a jackpot. Basically, we all work for them for free. When they call their selves the Emperors, another meaning of that is the Slavery Masters. We create works of art until we are alive with no respect or appreciation and the end, they take advantage of them mercilessly. I am not venge it to discuss deeply but reality is the word of Lord. In the whole history of art, Mark Rothko was realized the exact meaning of Art Emperors which I am talking about.
