The work was produced using thirteen vibrant colors, silk-screened to make three separate panels. This portion of the triptych features a single figure, their chest exposed, with shoulder length brown hair and a hat, against a purple background. The figure wears a short cropped dress. Swirling designs are to the right of the composition. Signed "R. Lindner" to the lower right side. The work is unframed.
Richard Lindner was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1901. Lindner studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule (Arts and Crafts School), now the Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg in Germany. He worked as an art director until the outbreak of World War II, when he was forced to flee to Paris. In 1941, Lindner moved to the United States and worked in New York City as an illustrator. In New York, he worked with artists and German emigrants such as Albert Einstein, Marlene Dietrich, and Saul Steinberg. In 1952, Lindner started teaching at the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn. In 1965, he became a professor at the Hochschule für bildende Künste in Hamburg, Germany. His paintings often used the sexual symbolism of advertising and investigated gender roles.
