Eva Martino, Velocipede
MediumOil on canvas
Credit LineGift of Nina F. Martino, 2000
Dimensions24 1/4 x 26 in.
Martino depicts a child seated on a velocipede, an early form of tricycle. The huge wheels are larger than the child, who stares ahead with an emotionless expression. The placement of the boy and the bike in the boxlike space gives the composition an odd, even surreal, quality.
