A female figure reclines in a chair. The room is shades of gray, bordering on white. The figure sits off-center, in middle gray tones. A black pipe and electrical cords at the right edge create a peculiar sense of balance in this relaxed composition. This art nude was photographed on black and white film with a Hasselblad camera.
The composition houses an array of lines. The union of the floor and wall, the pipe, chair legs, and the figure’s limbs. None of these align with the picture’s edges, imparting a spontaneous mood.
