This beautiful marble figure of a seated woman was crafted by the acclaimed Italian artist, Carlo Pittaluga (fl. early 20th Century). Pittaluga's oeuvre includes sculptures in a variety of media which depict beautiful young women. Two particularly fine examples, titled ‘Nymph of the Woods’ and ‘Nymph of the Fields’, are on display at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., USA. This work is signed on its reverse, ‘PITTALUGA’.

The sculpture depicts a young semi-nude woman sitting on a chair, which is crafted partly from roughly-hewn stone and partly from smooth yellow Sienna marble. The woman props her left elbow on the chair’s Siena arm and rests her head in her hand. In her right, she holds a book inscribed ‘1887-1912’. The woman’s head and nude body are crafted from pure white marble, and her lap is draped with fabric, rendered in green Verde Antico marble. Her right foot, which is also carved from white marble, pokes out from underneath the drapery. This exquisitely-carved sculpture will look perfect placed on top of a pedestal, or within an architectural niche.
