Portrait of a Female Scholar
This piece shows a woman in flowing dress and bare feet seated and holding texts. Her eyes look outward and upwards, which is a nod to future learnings and experiences. Her dress has corsetry, which tells you that while Roman or Greek in its depiction, the style was influenced by modern dress. All of this is perhaps total BS, but the piece is lovely and the small scale very elegant. The oil on canvas measures 10 1/2 x 8 1/2.
