A large sketch-study of a female figure.
Nineteenth century.
The young woman is represented naked, with a hand that seems to attract her attention.
The figure inserted in a niche.
Large drawing on lightly colored paper.
The drawing comes from the inheritance which mainly contained sketches and other works by the religious painter of Turin Luigi Reffo.
Often the painter, while representing figures of saints, apostles and other religious images, started from the anatomical study, from the study of posixione in which he then represented the dressed figures.

Coming from the bequest of the Turin artist Luigi Guglielmino.

The collection of sketches and preparatory drawings mainly included works by his master, Enrico Reffo (Turin, 1831-1917), one of the major representatives of Italian religious painting of the second half of the 19th century.
High quality drawing, showing the continuity of the Italian and French academic drawing school, which continued to live in the studio of the painter Reffo in Turin.
