Young Woman with a Fan, Simon Maris, c. 1906

Young Woman with a Fan, Simon Maris, c. 1906

oil on canvas, h 41cm × w 29cm × d 11cm More details

Simon Maris painted this woman on various occasions, holding a cigarette or a red fan. Perhaps she was a model, yet this painting could also be an actual portrait. For want of information, in the past it was variously titled as The Negress, Portrait of a Mulatto, East-Indian Type, The Little Negress. These terms are now considered derogatory. Until her name is known, the painting will bear a neutral title.
