  • Description
    In some instances, a painting will look significantly much better in person than it does digitize. This is one instance. In-person, this painting will knock your socks off. It is stunning and you can look at it forever Among another things, Millard Sheets is a brilliant colorist. The flesh tones he has achieved in this exotic nude are drop-dead gorgeous to look at. Additional, this is a very large painting complemented by an elegant period frame. Finally, it has been widely exhibited.
