Jean is the matriarch of the Sabatine family, who are the artist’s neighbors in rural Pennsylvania.
One of the most lyrical moments in Social Graces, this scene centers on a cake that is a little lopsided, but obviously made with love. Shot outdoors, the figures are kissed by a gentle natural light. The young girl becomes a conduit for our memories of the magic of celebrations and the anticipation of sugary delights.
