Description: 

This portrait depicts Zaina Curzon, performance artist from the 1912 Ziegfeld Follies. Curzon is captured at a very close up range, almost filling the entire portrait. Curzon is attired with a lace adorned white dressing gown, with matching shawl looped in the crook of her left arm. Curzon clasps a small bedside clock to her chest. The expression reflects a momentary contemplation, that crosses Curzon’s face. Thick dark hair spills down her back and shoulders. The dark backdrop provides significant contrast to the model, as she become more pronounced even luminescent.
