Literature

Study of a standing, full-length woman turned slightly to the left. Figure's arms are extended out away from her body to the left. The background is darkened around her face and arms, but otherwise left unfinished. There is a structure (a pillar/column) to the left of the figure and wavy lines along her back (ribbon?).
