Fritz Henle, Reclining NudeThe situation of the resting girl in this pure white nothingness is most delicate and refined. The darkish female form contrasts sharply with the light, cool, open space, and demands total attention amidst the total absence of the incidental and the distracting. Sheer nudity, absolute, sundered from the world, yet paradoxically utterly wordly, utterly within reach - a masterly transfiguration of womankind !. Cover unfresh, inside very good.
