This painting – half portrait, half life-study – captures the play of light on the model’s skin through a combination of contrasting highlights of olive green, pink, sienna and red. On account of the hairstyle, this life-study can be dated to around 1915 or slightly later.

We are grateful to David Maes for assistance.
