A woman reclines in glowing white, her posture a combination of relaxed elegance and studied, thoughtful tension, pressing together index finger and thumb on each hand. Although we have a full view of her face, she is looking outside the field of the canvas – dark eyes staring into the middle distance. Whilst Euan Uglow's studies of nudes are among his best-known works of the 1970s, the portrait Georgia has both a tonal quality and an engagement with the subject that sets it apart from the colder objectivity of the nudes.
