There's a loosely rendered bed in the background of an India ink drawing from 1796 by Spanish Romantic Francisco de Goya. In the foreground, a woman who's looking down and almost smirking has her hands on her waist. She might or might not be about to untie her sash. The man leaning close to her ear, wearing a white scarf and long, striped coat, seems deep in a Don Juan act. Goya, who always handled his materials with such expert looseness, titled this lovely little work She Is Bashful About Undressing. It's part of the Norton Simon's current Goya showcase. 411 W. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena; through March 3. (626) 449-6840, nortonsimon.org.
