El├ęgante au manteau rose

Year: 1899

Description: A portrait of a lady in an elegant pink coat. Her detailed appearance contradicts the look of impatience on her face. For the leisured class this may well have been considered "work" and she reveals her displeasure with the affair. Fortunately, there are little people to assist with a wardrobe. Unfortunately, they can't pose as their employer as she sits for the artist. Hermann-Paul relied on this soft color palette often at the turn of the 20th Century.

Provenance: L'Estampe Originale circa 1899
