In her sculptures, prints and painting, artist Margaret Burroughs focused on the themes of family, community and history. These concepts were also consistent with her work as a writer and prominent social activist in Chicago. In her watercolor, Girl Seated, Burroughs presents an intimate scene of a young girl seated, poised and directly confronting viewers with her gaze. While the girl?s figure appears solid and clearly defined, Burroughs uses a pale palette of greens, yellows and blues to convey the serene, quiet mood of the scene.
