About the Item: This large and arresting painting is what I believe must have been one of a pair, with a male nude of exactly the same size and style by the artist that sold at Coletti Gallery some years back (priced at $9,000 - see photos). Female nudes, for the record, have a larger market and typically hold more value. At any rate, I probably don't need to tell you how remarkably wonderful this painting is - probably my favorite of the 200 or so artworks I currently hold. She is just absolutely exquisite. And what I love most is that despite the classical rendering, she remains a distinct person, not completely idealized, but with character in her face; perfection is not beauty. Framed in an elaborate and expensive gilt frame. A few very expert repairs that do not show a trace on the front.
Dimensions given include frame.

About the Artist
Cordelia Loring Brooks graduated from Harvard University in the Class of 1889, when women had not long been admitted there. In 1932, she was awarded a traveling scholarship by the Boston Museum of Fine Art. One of her paintings was accepted for the annual exhibition of the Paris Salon, a huge honor during any period. Her paintings are vanishingly rare on the market.
