Lot Details

"Serena" (2004) is a sensual exploration of texture and form in this pure pigment, rice paper and canvas painting by famed Korean female artist, SoHyun Bae. Dimensions: 40 x 30 in. (101.6 x 76.2 cm). Unframed and in excellent condition. Western in theme, Bae presents a cropped image of the female nude, feeling like a Classical statue of Aphrodite than a portrait of a specific person.

This work comes directly from the Studio of the Artist and will ship from U.S.
