Nude Woman


Modeller: Kemper, Georg




Terracotta with yellowish-white tin-glaze

Pale orange terracotta, covered with yellowish-white unevenly applied tin-glaze, which has black speckles and has crazed. The woman stands, resting her left foot on a vase. She holds up a drape to her left thigh with her right hand, and holds her left breast with her right hand. The octagonal base which is hollow underneath, supports a pouf-shaped pedestal with a circular top on which the figure stands.
