Barbara de Wilde: A Stopover in Venice

A woman who is disillusioned by her marriage escapes from her husband whilst vacationing in Italy. She rescues a dog, faints, and ends up living in a grand palazzo that used to be a convent. There, she discovers mysterious works of art and goes on a quest trying to identify them, all the whilst discovering her independence. Is it just me, or does the juxtaposition of the cropped legs and face make the figure possibly even more erotic than if the painting had been uncropped? And the red lines on the tag are peculiar and rather cool.
