I am preparing a much longer post… but for now:
Doesn’t Robert Henri’s Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney awe in its richness, beauty and presence?
I love that the original which hangs in The Whitney Museum in New York isn’t a small one.
One is able to appreciate the large scale and depth of work. I also really like that the portraiture is of a woman who has chosen modest clothing and allowed jewelled colours like emeralds, sapphires and turquoise to shine.
Prints available from Fine Art America.
