Denys Sutton writes: "[Van Dongen's] reputation was made in the 1920s and 30s by his portraits. His major successes were scored with his portraits of women...in which chic and charm are admirably suggested...it is as well to reflect on the wise words of J.-L. Vaudoyer: 'The portraits of M. Van Dongen will probably later be psychological documents. Like a Van Dyck or a Gainsborough, a Goya or a Guys, M. Van Dongen is the moralist of this Salon' " (Denys Sutton, Van Dongen, Tucson, 1971, p. 48).
