The remarkable paintings of Rochester artist Josephine Tota were private reflections, often resulting from dreams or memories. Her unique style was influenced by medieval paintings. As in traditional Catholic altarpieces, the small figure (the artist) prays on her knees, beseeching help from the larger figures. This image may reference her 1984 cataract surgery and the resulting complications that had her dependent upon and possibly resentful of her doctors.
