Very large oil on canvas (2.10 m x 1.45 m), of a young woman leaning on a sculptor’s easel, probably resting between two posing sessions.
Nude, adorned with gold and silver jewels, part of her body clothed in gold-threaded tulle, she leans against a sculptor’s easel on which stands a sculpture probably representing Leda and the swan?
At her feet, a large antique-style amphora decorated, among other things, with a woman playing the lyre, from which a bouquet of roses and gypsophila gushes forth.
An oriental carpet covers the floor.
A beautiful impression of gentleness underlined by a high level of estheticism.
Original canvas, stretcher and frame.
Signed lower left A.LAURENS, dated 1883.
Albert F.A. LAURENS, painter born in Lyon in April 1864, died in 1934.
