There is something unearthly about this painting, a weightlessness that is joined to a mode of dance from centuries ago. Something is captured in this moment for ever.

The piece saw a long development with many revisions, all of which fhow traces in the finished piece. Its painted on a fine cotton for reasons dictated by circumstances at the time.
