About the Work

A grande entrée in a small studio: an artist has adopted a confident air and a Bohemian attitude as he sits for his portrait in the sparsely furnished room. The painting of his right hand is incomplete. Hanging on the wall like the coat of arms of a guild is a palette. Two colleagues are meeting here as equals: the unknown man being portrayed and the female artist painting him. At the age of twenty-two, the painter Ottilie Roederstein travelled, like many artists of her time, to Paris, where she succeeded in asserting herself in the male-dominated art scene. She took lessons from portraitists such as Jean-Jacques Henner and exhibited works at the Paris Salon.
