Oil on Canvas Nude - Signed and Framed
The "Woman in Repose" is the title I have given to this fine artwork. It caught my eye at an estate sale last year and the given age was placed at the early 1900's, possibly as early as the late 1800's. The artist is said to be of the American School. However, I am not an artist or art critic. Therefore, I will leave identification to those knowledgeable in the subject.
The painting depicts the beautiful image of a woman who has been caught off guard in a private moment. We see that she has taken care to demurely hide her face as she lies exposed for the artist to admire. In turn, the artist has captured and shared her beauty while allowing the viewers imagination to complete the picture.
The frame and painting measure 14" x 18.25". The frame is solid, gilded wood.
