Rodríguez's unsettled picture was inspired by Italian artist Giorgione's The Tempest (about 1505), a puzzling painting that portrays a nude woman nursing a child under the watchful eye of a man, possibly a soldier. Like The Tempest , Rodriguez's painting gathers disparate elements and offers in clear narrative.

The disturbing image of Rodríguez was inspired by the work

The image of Rodríguez was inspired by the work < em> The Tempest (circa 1505) by Italian artist Giorgione, a bewildering painting depicting a naked woman suckling a child under the watchful eye of a man, possibly a soldier. As in The Tempest , Rodriguez's painting groups dissimilar elements without providing a clear narrative. Three figures are standing, sitting or walking through an unstable space. The emotional intensity evokes the uprooting of the exile or the disorder of the difficult times.
