This painting is one of Egypt's most powerful leaders...Cleopatra. In this painting, she is idealized as well as representational. Looking at this painting, one can see right away that it is Cleopatra and not just a random woman. The jewelry and head ware she has on implies power. Her features are strong and conveys a sense of seriousness to the person observing the artwork.
