Drawn in sepia charcoal on a heavy buff paper, this striking portrait depicts a beautiful young woman wearing a hooded cloak and large hoop earrings, while gazing intently at the viewer. The drawing is monogrammed at the top and bottom right, with the initials "JR", with "II" after the upper initials. On heavy buff paper, with a visible watermark (looks like "I 0 possibly I, with the 0 on her right cheek and other unclear marks on her neck), it is matted in modern archival materials in a wood frame with gilt details. Sight size is 8" x 6", and the frame measures 13" x 10 1/4". The style is classic Art Deco, with cubist influences, and is drawn with sure strokes, clearly the work of an accomplished artist. Similar in style to the works of Tamara de Lempicka, it evokes an aura of mystery and glamor, with an image that is exotic and compelling.
