An oil painting by Czechoslovakian born artist Jan de Ruth (1922-1991), entitled 'Red Drape', depicting an impressionist rendering of a female nude from the waist up, reclining gently to one side, a vermilion colored cloth wrapped around her hips. This work is a sublime example of the artist's skilled brushwork and ability to capture physical form and expression within his studies of female nudes. Painting comes in wood frame with carved gilt foliage. Markings include the artist's signature to the lower right corner, [Red Drape] to the reverse; plaque with artist's name to front. Very good condition, consistent with age.
