In Capel Street, Dublin

In Capel Street, DublinThe painting illustrates a young flower seller huddled in a doorway of a sweetshop with a baby in her arms, her basket still full. Politics and the Civil War meant little to her, cleanly- dressed, but seated amid the detritus on the street. The door to the sweetshop is closed, as if a metaphor for the future of the young woman, the baby, and indeed, anyone else in a similar class.
