The subject of this semi nude figure study, ‘Amandine’ is a mystery. Some things we know. She is Parisian. She came through the war. She is an optimist and she yearns to travel. This small painting in acrylics, is simple in composition, but reaches out of the canvas and asks us questions. Amandine’s expression is enigmatic, but what is she thinking as she looks at us, contra-posto with a half smile and a hairstyle straight from les Annees Folles.
