AD))): In the center of the work, a woman sits atop a wooden surface. The woman’s expression appears solemn, and her gaze drifts off into the distance, almost past the viewer. Her right hand rests on the wood while her left drapes over her knee, which is crossed over her other leg. Her clothes are patterned along the seams. Her shirt opens up slightly as she leans back against a striped wallpaper. In the foreground of the work, her left foot rests on a patterned rug with floral designs. A small box is placed next to a bowl of fruit in the bottom left corner of the work; both items rest on the patterned rug. The lithograph markings bleed into the edges, leaving blank space between Odalisque Assise and its frame. (Blair Englert '24 / Ava Knapp '24)
