The young coya, dressed and stretched out on Andean textiles, presents in the formal treatment of her arms and feet, the attentive look at the muralist tradition and modern indigenous painting of Latin America. The color mastery of her clothes is complemented by the three planes of color in the background, in counterpoint with the earthy skin of her hands, bare feet, and her face, in the shade of her typical bowler hat. Pagano made study trips in Europe, but he also traveled a lot in our America, as expressed in this work.
