This is a piece by Leonard Hurzlmeier and it is called "Robber Baroness." He usually paints his women figures with rounded edges and various hues in each painting. He tended to paint women in physical activities or in motion. His selection of paintings usually include women being in social roles. The shading makes it look like the figure is in movement. I choose this piece specifically because I found it very strange. It looked like a grandma trying to be incognito. She is wearing a crown with a white pearl necklace and barefoot. Her eyes also remind me of the nazars, which is a symbol used to repel the evil eye.
