The Angel of Night

A little bit of kitsch, a little bit of heaven . . . sort of that awkward time between Art Nouveau and Art Deco . . .

Frederick Marriott —The Angel of Night _ 1907
gesso and mother-of-pearl

Well, that is interesting. I think you're right about,"awkward". Is that pieces of mother of pearl on a canvas?
It feels like if pre-raphaelites did Tron. The face contrasts so with the pearl.
