Vincent van Gogh’s “Agostina Segatori Sitting in the Café du Tambourin.” This face is almost expressionless, but it is not inactive. It displays a certain resignation, emphasized by the resting pose of the body. She offers her face to be looked at in all its stillness. A stillness that is also full of hidden movement, on the verge of change, whether into sadness or into a smile: sadness in the drooping eyes; a smile beginning to curl itself into view. Is the resignation evolving into realization?
