Lot Essay

This study of the artist's daughter Mary can be compared to a large number of similar works by Franz von Stuck. One of his favourite models, Mary posed for her father in works such as this one, which are personal in nature and notable for their candour, and other more finished works, in which she served as a traditional model, typically dressed in elaborate Spanish or Greek costume.
