Large early pastel by Elsie Dinsmore Popkin (American, North Carolina, 1937-2005) of a partially nude woman with her reflection in a mirror. Very impressionist rendition which brings to mind the work of Mary Cassatt and Childe Hassam. Signed "Elsie Dinsmore Popkin" and dated 1975 l.l. In excellent original condition, and still in its original frame. 25" by 20" work alone, 35" by 30" with frame. Elsie Dinsmore Popkin was a well-known pastel artist who created lush landscapes in that medium, although her early work was devoted to the depiction of the figure, mainly female nudes. She was a resident of Winston-Salem, NC, but maintained a strong tie with Cornell University throughout her life. Extremely well listed, collected, and exhibited.
