The painting itself is a large five-foot by six-foot canvas featuring Louisa Villea, aptly named for the city she represents.
While Louisa's portrait is presented in Renaissance realism, her raiment makes a departure toward American realism, depicting her similarly to the subjects of a John Singer Sargent painting.
If you are using a tiltable LCD monitor, try this to see how Louisa represents all of the Louisville citizenry. You can actually change her ethnicity by tilting the monitor forward and back.
