Title: Portrait of Jeanne Hebuterne

Year: 1919
Size: 55 x 38 cm (Oil on canvas)
Location: Private Collection

The grayish blue of one background panel echoes the colour of her round-necked dress; the yellowish orange panel reflects the tone of her skin.  Jeanne’s close up oval face and thick reddish brown hair, falling to her shoulders, fill the frame of the picture.  She has widely spaced brown eyes, a long narrow nose, a sweet smiling mouth, nicely pointed chin and thin neck.  In this portrait, she looks both calm and contented.
