Reclining Nude

‘Reclining Nude’ by Duncan Grant, 1930. The artist wrote 5 February 1970, “I’m afraid I cannot fit an accurate date to the picture. It was painted at 8 Fitzroy St, London from a model, 1930 or so but I cannot be sure of the year. I’m sorry not to be able to give you more information.” The painting depicts a full female figure reclining nude angled left to right.
