Leona Christensen from the book "Venus Siegt".

Illustration for a tip-in plate and postcard for a science-fiction novel by Dietmar Dath, published by Hablizel Publishing, Germany (c).
Yes, the portrait of the female dictator/leader Leona Christensen looks old school - still, the story takes place on planet Venus where the differences between artificial entities and human beings is a central point of the unfolding story. This is real sci-fi, with a lot of food for thought.
The painting is one of many collaborations with Luisa Preissler (more artwork from her on http://luisapreissler.de/).
