CM: The Bust Portrait of Yiolanda Levides of about 1925 ranges amongst the most sensitive pictures of children that Zographos ever created. Yiolanda Levides was daughter of Alecos Levides and aunt of donor Lydia Vassiliades. Set on a matching mat the photograph is like a window opening in a child's sensitive world. Yiolanda is shown seated with her eyes shut lost in thoughtful sleep, bending her braided head forward. She wears a typical girl's light-colored and short-sleeved dress and supports a rose on her lap, where her hands meet. This beautiful portrait of dreamy qualities with prevalent sepia tones is one of few portraits without any further of Zographos' usual interventions.
