Portrait of a Lady
Portrait of a seated woman in a white dress with hands clasped on her lap
Work is a combination of low relief, sculpture and painting, which depicts a marine scene. A sculpted tall ship navigates through a strait. throughout the composition, are numerous islands modelled in low relief in gesso. Three white buildings, two in relief, populate the islands. Two couples, too large for the scale of the buildings and islands, appear to be searching for something or someone. There is a woman stranded on a small island directly behind the tall ship. Waves are crashing against the shoreline of this island and she is in an agitated state. A small boat with six occupants can just be discerned in the water coming to her resuce. The background is flat, without relief, and shows a blue sky, brown mountains and a green tree line.
