Matisse, Henri. 1869-1954

Portrait of a Young Woman with Flowing Hair

France, 1933

Lydia Delectorskaya, Matisse's secretary and regular model, was just 23 years old when the artist captured her in this sketch (compare the Hermitage's painted portraits of Delectorskaya, dated 1939 and 1947). Executed in charcoal and stump, which enabled him to model the sitter in soft light and shade, the sketch has all of Matisse's spontaneous impressions of nature.
