This original painting is sold without the frame. This alluring portrait of a woman in a gorgeous, red dress is enriched with a palette of intensely glamorous hues, imbued with decadent highlights and shadows. The woman’s calm expression is rendered in traditional realist techniques that emphasise the pleasure felt when relaxing with a book. The interior space elegantly surrounds the figure, with impressive, refined details added to the drapery and plants, adding to the grandeur of the scene. This artwork is painted on stretched canvas, signed and ready to be displayed.
