Tadeusz Styka (1889 – 1954)

Tadeusz Styka. Portrait of a Lady

Dość niezwykły portret kobiety w wykonaniu Tadeusza Styki. Autorstwo twarzy kobiety nie budzi wątpliwości natomiast z autorstwem rąk mam problemy. Obraz jest mocno uszkoszodzony z naprawioną długą krechą od buzi aż do dekoltu. Palce rąk są nienaturalnie długie i skrzywione. Portret Femme Fatalle? Wycena jest bardzo optymistycznie ustawiona. Rama bardzo dobrze dobrana.
