The left and bottom edges of this panel have been trimmed; originally all of the sitter’s right hand would have been included. The face is highly worked, but other areas are thinly sketched, suggesting that the work may be unfinished. The restricted palette and asymmetrical pose give an air of tension and melancholy.
