CM: Painter Lydia Gravanis was known also to be an actress. This is but one of many portraits that Jannis Maillis made of her for being beautiful. The setting here is the Athens flat (19 Solonos Street) of jewelry designer Sofia Thanopoulou, better known as Maroulina. Gravanis is trying a necklace by Maroulina, and checks it in the mirror. This piece of jewelry is now in the possession of the sitter's daughter and donor of this artwork, Ms. Lydia Vassiliades.
