Isaac Israels was a frequent visitor to Paris, as is reflected in this summery portrait. He was one of the few Dutch artists to adopt the bright palette of the French Impressionists. And just like them he favoured subjects from modern life, such as this beach scene. Squinting in the light, this woman enjoys a moment in the sun, the blue of the sea echoed in her hat and white blouse.
