I liked the triangular position of the model’s body and put her in an Egyptian scenery, thinking of my roundism style relating to hieroglyphics and Egyptian arts in general. I always liked the intense need for styling and I consider the depictions of the human body by the old Egyptians to be one of mankind’s greatest achievements.
I am not sure what I thought about her, except for her strong personality. I sometimes liked her paintings and then I didn’t. What I have in common with her is that we both are autodidacts and that we like(d) to go our own way in life. Somehow I always come across her once in a while and that is why I decided to draw her. I saw a lovely – rare – nude photograph and thought I’d include her in my sans titre / roundism series.
