Add this image of the lovely Valentina's nude back to personalize a small space in your home. Or use it as a drawing aid in art school; learn by copying, even at home.
This is a digital download of a charcoal drawing from a live model, Valentina. She is sitting with her feet tucked up half-under her while her long dark hair falls across one shoulder as she rests her head on the back of the bench.
The original drawing was first exhibited in Florence, Italy, in my first solo show in Italy. The sketch of Valentina sold immediately to an architect firm not far from the exhibit. [That is the photo of the drawing on the mantel of their office.] Her long flowing hair lends to the relaxed feel of the pose.

[The original drawing has been sold, but there are images of how it was framed using non-reflective Museum Glass, with spacers to avoid the use of a mat.]
I recommend going to your local print shop and print this image out on a nice thick paper, preferably watercolor paper to mimic the texture of the original paper of the life drawing. You may also try online services such as snapfish.com [printing photographs and ships to you, however, in that case, I recommend choosing a matt finish, not glossy]
Paper prints should be either press-mounted to an acid-free support, such as foam core, or hung on the base support ONLY by the top. If the paper falls freely, it may adjust better to changing humidity conditions. A mat give a classical look. I recommend that the mat be slightly less space at the top. Often if the mat is the same width top and bottom, the art tends to look low. Then a simple black or dark brown frame (depending on color of drawing) will finish the look.
