Exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1984, where its sheer bravura and generous dimensions ensured that it dominated all other works in the room, this is a magnificent nude study in Stan Smith’s unmistakeable style.

It is one of several major works by Stan Smith that featured in the Rediscovering Stan Smith exhibition in Bath in May 2015.
