"La Trappistine" depicts a young woman dressed in a religious habit, representing a Trappist nun.

The central figure in "La Trappistine" is portrayed with a calm and serene expression. She wears a simple and flowing habit, emphasising her spirituality and dedication to her faith. Mucha's attention to detail is evident in the delicate rendering of the fabric and the intricate patterns on the nun's garments.
Comes in excellent vintage condition with minimal signs of patina.
