Lot Details

"Heart, No. 63" (2010) is a surreal and stunning portrait of a beautiful young woman depicted nude in profile from her shoulders up, with her dark brunette, chic Modern hairstyle covering most of her facial features, with the exception of her lips painted in vibrant red lipstick and her delicate nose.

This painting measures inches, 9.90 x 7.90 inches (25 x 21 cm) is unframed and in excellent condition.
