This early 20th-century oil painting by Dutch artist Jelle Troelstra (1891-1979) depicts a seated woman wearing a floral top and dark grey dress.

With eyes closed and hands held upon her lap, she’s decidedly restful. Rendered in a swirly abundance of deft marks, enlivened with red highlights. Her identity is unknown but the artist has cleverly suggested her age via some pinching of the skin. Her expression is mesmerising.

Troelstra was an accomplished painter who was shown at the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam and the Rijksmuseum. This is a particularly good example of his work.
