Lady wearing a gauze headdress – a gaze into time

This charming and effortlessly executed portrait depicts a young woman, seated upright with her hands clasped self-consciously in front of her. The horizontal lines in the upper half of the image – caused primarily by the creases and folds in the woman’s headdress – contrast well with the vertical lines of the lower half of the painting – caused by the folds and stitching of her dress.
