Description

The painting depicts a young, nude woman reclining in a sombre, rugged landscape as she stares directly at the viewer. Her long, dark hair is wrapped around the length of her form, and an abandoned bunch of flowers is strewn by her side. The painterly manner is exceptionally accomplished; the colour palette is almost grisaille in its spareness; and the lighting renders her form with sculptural chiaroscuro.

The painting is indistinctly signed lower right and framed in a giltwood frame.
