Gleizes depicts Anne-Rose with an array of shapes, colors, and lines that combine to form a unique likeness, one that is more intuitive than realistic. This combination of abstraction and realism provides a depth not typically seen in Cubist works—the hilly landscape and village behind Anne-Rose are distinct from her position in the foreground.
