Catalogue Note

The present work depicts a lady wearing a sumptuous mantilla and holding an open fan against a verdant Baroque tapestry, which Zuloaga often used as the backdrop for his compositions. His talent as a portrait artist revealed by the sitter's convincing mien of pride and confidence, and the sophisticated contrast of light and shadow. As Lafuente Ferrari remarked, 'For Zuloaga, character is everything; details, features and subtleties are sacrificed to it, while gesture, action and gaze are stressed with compelling energy' (Lafuente Ferrari, p. 286).
