Portrait of a Young Woman with Red Hair by Sylvia Levine

The staring eyes and startling hair of this young woman, whose face is thrust close to the viewer, offer a challenge. Yet the range of varied hues - especially where Levine conveys the delicacy of the skin and the neat symmetry of the features - is refined and sophisticated. This is a portrait full of insight, the confrontational first impression belied by the subtlety of the characterisation.
