The Auditor is an allegorial painting that represents the embodiment of the artist’s spirit. Often this spirit appears as inspiration or poetry but in this case it appears as the artist’s judge and jury. She looks down upon him, measuring his efforts and recording them in her single book of judgement. The cloak that she wears is painted in crimson, one of Gottliebs classic and enduring colors. Her brooch is an heirloom of multifaceted jewels glinting in the light, symbolizing the way ideas constantly transform in the mind.
