Information about author
Among the many female images created by Corneliu Baba, Ironer occupies its rightful place. In this one-figure composition, the main attention is concentrated on the figure of a young woman leaning over an iron. Paintbrush strokes accurately inscribe the oval of the young face, lush wavy hair, slumped shoulders and hands. The image is quite ordinary, yet vitally convincing. Accuracy of psychological characterisation is impressive when the artist has managed to outline her heroine's fate and the moody tone of her life with just a few strokes. Baba is laconic in his statements, everything is strict and precise, there are few details that are clearly marked and have their place in the composition.
In the top right corner, there is the author's signature and year «79»
