Richard Bober: Study of a Woman in Cleopatra Style
Original portrait study depicting a romanticized image of a woman, with make-up and dress suggesting ancient Egypt - "Cleopatra" style. In the late 1990s Bober created plate designs for a Bradford Exchange collector plate commission - with the result of inspiring several studies over the course of subsequent years - all of them depicting Cleopatra but with diverse models and interpretations of her beauty. This "Cleo" is loosely but romantically done in profile, oil on canvas 16" x 12". The Estate will provide a letter of authenticity, but there's no doubt this is Bober's work!
