Catalogue Note

The son of a Russian diplomat and an American opera singer, Troubetzkoy was born on Lake Maggiore. Restlessly moving across continents, he brought to sculpture the dazzling effects obtained by the portrait painters of the international high society, reporting wherever he went the evolution of contemporary fashions steered by the upmost distinguished elite of the Belle Epoque up to the unchained generation of the Années Folles. The sitter of our portrait is thoughtfully placed in a chair, seemingly drawing in the viewer, creating a shared moment of intimacy, like in another Portrait of a Woman Seated by Troubetzkoy (Sotheby's London, 16 December 2015, Lot 130, £ 87,500). This portrait has sometime been wrongly identify as the Marchesa Casati whom Trobetzkoy portrayed standing with her greyhound in 1913.
