Old Woman from Arles - Vielle Arlésienne
The old woman, dressed in the traditional 19th century costume of the Arles region, wears black and white, with her large, black woolen shawl, and the headdress of the older women of the Arles region. She carries a basket filled with green olives on her arm. The richness of her costume is indicative of Arles, an ancient town of art and culture and an important center of Provençal traditions.
