Title

Possible self-portrait by Lucy

Description

Lucy created many drawings and paintings. This pencil sketch is the only one in her papers which resembles her. Though it is unsigned and not identified as a self-portrait, it could be a glimpse into how Lucy wished to depict herself: in the image the woman appears interrupted mid-way through reading; she is remote, a little distracted, keen of eye. Above her swirls an abstract geometrical shape.
