The portraits of woman by Sofia Bonati were fascinating to me. What initially catches my attention in the portraits is the expressive features of the women that she paints. I was mesmerized by their nuanced facial expression which I was not able to understand right away. Even after looking at the portrait of the women as I look around the face I became lost in spirals and swirls surrounding the face. I could see with intense detail how the Sofia was able to separate the women from the complex swirls in the painting. I also enjoyed how the women was not consumed by the chaos surrounding her. Her strong and powerful facial expression suggested that she was in control of everything around her.
