Hard to say from this painting by Spanish artist Rogelio de Egusquiza y Barrena (1845-1915) whether the elegant young woman in the picture is reluctant to draw herself away, or is merely falling asleep. Either way, there is a narrative underway, here. Exactly what, Egusquiza leaves to our imaginations. The picture is one of a series Egusquiza painted on a similar, somewhat melodramatic theme.
