Artwork out of stock

This is one of several portraits of a mysterious woman called "Naila" that were done by Max Beckmann. It is now known that Naila was Dr. Hildegard Melms, and that Beckmann had an affair with her in 1923, the same year he executed this print. This important German Expressionist woodcut can be found in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Brooklyn Museum and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).
