Subject and Association DescriptionItaly was the subject for many of Lindsays etchings.
"The Sicilian subjects combine to give an impression of a society living in an ageless existence, forever washing clothes, keeping goats; living in a place where all is aged and timeless, and the chores are unchanging."
