A naked woman, adorned with jewelry, is lounging on a chaise longue. The curves of the armchair follow those of her naked body. Seeming to sunbathe, she relaxes in a very relaxed attitude.

The decor is modernist and cubist. Geometric forms with varied motifs are intertwined in superimposed planes.
The atmosphere is summery and marine.

He exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français, of which he became a member.
