Carry Hauser, who died at 90, was influenced by numerous artistic movements throughout his long career, including Expressionism, Cubism, and Futurism. Although perhaps more decorative than the work of many of his Expressionist contemporaries, his woodcut "Girl" of 1922 shares much in common, including a favored medium and subject matter. When examined closely, the innocuous theme of a seated nude female takes on a much darker quality through her expression, the placement of her hand, wilting leaves, the strangeness of the dog at her side, and the bird hovering above her head.
