About

Painted by Raimundo de Madrazo y Garreta, this fine oil on canvas dates to 1890 and depicts a portrait of a beautiful woman. She is Nina Fagnani, the French American socialite and miniature portrait artist, wearing a low cut dress with a flower, silk necklet and her hair up. He was a famous portrait artist in his day and this is dedicated to the sitter. Signed lower right. Provenance. Family of Nina Fagnani. Framed in a fine gallery frame which is approx. 40 inches by 30 inches. In excellent condition. Raimundo De Madrazo Y Garreta (1841-1920) was famous during his lifetime and painted portraits for wealthy French, American, British, and Argentine patrons. He was also known for his skilful and often flirtatious genre scenes, such as this painting in the Lehman Collection. In this scene, a couple dressed in extravagant costumes share drinks in a quiet conservatory after a ball. The male leans across the table, gazing at the coquettish blonde female whose face is hidden behind a black mask. She drapes her fingers across her chest, one of many gestures and details in the painting that Madrazo uses to evoke a playfully suggestive subject. The artist further entices the viewer with his beautiful painterly effects seen in the way that he conveys extraordinary material satin, fur, porcelain, glass, feather, and velvet, all bathed in light.
