This eye-catching drawing depicts a nude woman standing in front of a plain background. The subject is arching her body and holding her arms out wide as she stands on the edge of a ledge on the tips of her toes. In the absence of any other objects and forms, combined with the stark colour difference between the subject’s body and the space behind, our entire focus is unavoidably given to her.

The bold background, clear sleek lines and streamlined composition distinguishes this artwork as an eye-catching Art Deco object.
