Description

I think my attraction to Russian last century painting inspired me when i worked on this portrait of a woman called Magdalena. The rug is an absolute must, considering the scanty clothing and the Russian inspiration. The painting is rather classical and aims at giving a feeling of serenity and quiet expectation, no anxiety. It is framed in a gold and black American box, which emphasises the depth of it. The painting itself is a 47 x 39.5 linen canvas. Framed it is 53 x 45.5 cms and weighs 1kg3.
