The nude was created in the 1920s and has numerous features characteristic of the artist's work during this period. Both the pose of the model and the manner of painting situate this work in the group of Weissian female nudes of those years. The woman is shown at a moment of rest as she flips through a magazine at her leisure. It is worth mentioning that Weiss liked to paint such "informal" nude shots and titled such compositions "pause" - obviously while posing.
In the offered painting, the model has a hairstyle typical of the era, and her lips are painted with carmine lipstick. ( The same model is pictured in the well-known painting "Nude against a background of red drapery.") This composition was preceded by drawing studies, one of which, made with a pen and lavaged in ink, appeared at auction several years ago.
Weiss' nudes can be simplified into two groups. The first includes compositions reminiscent of the Old Masters, where nude women in Titian poses rest on satin bedding. The second, on the other hand, includes depictions of "undressed" contemporary women, placed in the space of the atelier, busy reading or browsing the paintings gathered in the artist's studio.
