The child's figure is based on photograph of Dr. Heinz Schiffers taken in Algeria in the 1950s.


The work belongs to the permanent collection of the Municipal Gallery of Kallithea "Sophia Laskaridou".


These works are part of my third solo painting exhibition titled "The Child that lives within ourselves", which took place in the Municipal Gallery of Kallithea "Sophia Laskaridou" in December 2017 and deals with childhood concerns as well as the adult who remains always a child.
