Circa 1880-90, a delightful French Art Nouveau nude, possibly Academic, as models often posed on a similar stool, and signed L. Desbois, in the lower right corner.
The model is a petite woman as in early French photography, and she wears her hair in a typical Art Nouveau French plait.
The piece is done with sanguine on cream artist's paper.
An exquisite work that will bring Art Nouveau prestige to any decor.
