I did this piece working with a new model, Gemma, who I met here in Paris. The setting is in my apartment, and is one of several that I did around the windows looking out on Rue de Billancourt. This series was inspired by the Vermeer show that was up at the Louvre, and I wanted to create a sense of intimacy, in a home, as opposed to a studio. This piece is on stretched linen canvas that is nailed along the edges, which are painted. Framing is recommended but not required for hanging.
