This masterwork by Charles Allan Winter showcases an art nouveau nude in the style of Alfonse Mucha, seen in profile with purple iris. This provocative and wonderfully preserved oil on canvas, is perhaps the nicest example of Winter's work to come to market.
Winter is remembered for his work with Elbert Hubbard Roycrofter's movement. Illustrating many of Hubbard's 'Little Sermons' in Cosmopolitan magazine, the artist also worked frequently for The Fra Magazine. His style and aesthetic was recognized by proponents of the Arts & Crafts movement for its refined and harmonious beauty.
