A really lovely study of a seated nude in wonderfully expressive pastels delivering tone and texture to the subject. The use of blue tones over charcoal with the added hint of cadmium red creates a depth to this fabulous Swedish artwork. Signed by the artist to the bottom left.
This artwork is presented in the original wooden frame and mount behind glass. Not examined out of the frame. Good overall condition commensurate with age.
