Description: Edmund Fairfax-Lucy, oil on board, 20th-century interior portrait of a sleeping nudist in an artist's studio. a preeminent illustration of English interior and landscape painting, and the only nude study in his body of work. The title is thought to be "Addiction" since the naked person is seen dozing off between a package of cigarettes and a cup of tea while under the effects of a much more potent substance. A quick cleaning and coat of varnish would improve the painting even more. displayed in its original gold frame, signed. signed on the verso by the artist. Size: approximately 25" by 20" when framed
