Mixed Media on canvas, stretched and ready to hang

Signed on the back

Ready to hang canvas; 92cmx 122cm Olympia (after Manet) #5 is original and vintage paper, hand cut collage protected by acrylic varnish on a black acrylic painted stretched canvas.. Referencing Manet's Olympia this 1960s woman defiantly meets the gaze of the viewer, (although perhaps to a degree diffidently) she still however
meets the viewers gaze. Surrounded by and lifted out of the domesticity of a woman's life in the 1960's with the lushness of a Flemish painting. Perhaps the sum of us?
