Anyway, I do agree with you ... I do think this is the probably the best one of the series (though I do really like V as well). Once again, it has the red colors that I adore, but with a more ... *ponders her words carefully* ... sophisticated air than III and IV had.
And, I have to agree with patriot-of-death ... I rather like how the emphasis almost seems to be on that shoulderblade. Rather unconventional, considering where the emphasis usually would be in a nude portrait.
