Master Study - Cleopatra

Not excactly a household name but  a study of Cleopatra by Hungarian Gyula Benczur (1844 - 1920).  Its an interesting and unusual portayal and was fun to explore.  The first more serious study was done in the style and method of Prud'hon and the second was just a quick bit of fun with colour.
