Ella J. Seligmann

1913. Oil on canvas.
Room 060A

During his trip to Paris in the autumn of 1913 Sorolla painted the wife of Jacques Seligmann, a leading art dealer of German origin, emphasising her beauty and elegance through the use of a restrained background painted with very loose brushstrokes. Impasto is reserved for the brightest areas such as the flesh tones and the sumptuous white shawl.
