    • loneliness

    • Men; Banquet halls
    • The scene in this print depicts an actual occurrence Ms. Durieux saw while in Buenos Aires. She entered a posh hotel dining room and saw a child alone with only the waiters present. She returned to her room and made a quick sketch of the scene. It...

    • Women; Aged persons

    • Oppression and madness

    • Men
    • The print depicts two captive figures isolated within what one may consider to be a cell. A single window in the background allows for a stream of sunlight to filter into the area behind the figures, yet they take no notice of it, nor the warmth it...
    • Possession

    • Abstract paintings
    • The subject matter depicted is that of a monumental clawed hand-like form which is entangled in a vine-like growth. The vine in turn is held captive by the prong-like claws of the massing. The subject also could be interpreted as an entanglement of...

    • Men
    • The scene is a comment on the havoc of war. Here in the print, one sees that fear came from the sky, a statement on the air artillery attacks of WWII. As Ms. Durieux so appropriately stated, at that time, "... fear came from the heavens..."
    • Survivor

    • Abstract paintings; Men; Lions

    • Desiree

    • Women; Sitting
    • The heavy, sagging body of the woman, who sits on the stoop outside her house, adds to the unsuspected ridicule of the woman. To add to the ridicule she sits attired in her finery, with lace trimming and a flower pinned in her hair. What might have...
