"See no. 110. Another painting by Mr. Tojetti hangs on the west wall of this gallery. It represents an oriental woman of a rich, luxuriant style of beauty; voluptuous, full of grace, with a charm in every movement. She is one of those rare brunettes with a fresh, transparent complexion. Her dark hair falls over her shoulders in tangled wavelets. Her costume is a loose, flowing affair of pink and blue satin most exquisitely realized in quality. The background of the figure is of a light, golden tone, contributing much to the delicacy and richness of the color effect. - Louisville Courier-Journal." [P. 48; see serial 03860110 for commentary on artist.]
