Description of the artwork

Our painting is unquestionably the masterpiece of Jules-Abel Faivre. We can feel the influence of his master, Jules Lefebvre, in the signature. The delicacy of the model’s features and her long hair remind those of Sappho, the Greek poetess of the Antiquity. The painter Dante-Gabriel Rossetti made a similar work. Here, Abel Faivre shows with precision the perfect proportions of the young woman. The purple background of the canvas, mixed with a deep blue veil, highlights the sensuality of this painting.
