Description

Cast bronze. The figure is a nude woman reclining on her left side. She is leaning back against a textured, oblong pedestal. Her hair is pulled up in a wavy bun, and she looks over her right shoulder into the distance.

Reclining figures and nudes were a common subject for Umlauf. Umlauf's model for this sculpture was Ione Katherine Luster-Watts (1935-2014), who modeled for the University of Texas Art Department, where Umlauf taught.
