The Contrast

There was an outcry against the poverty of working class women, working at home in the 19th century, and many artists used this subject matter in their work.In this image one can see the poor woman collapsed over her work, and whilst one of the young ladies shows some concern for the seamstress, the gaze of the other is clearly directed to the unfinished gown now laying in a heap on the floor.it is an image which well reflects the name of my project.
