Chasseresse by Romaine Brooks, 1920.
Romaine Brooks (1874 – 1970) made a name for herself in Paris as a painter of women, some of whom were her lovers. Her most visible and lasting relationship was with the American poet Natalie Barney, who also lived in Paris.
* See: La France Croisée (The Cross of France, 1914).
"Brooks balanced the mythological and the sensual in this painting of a huntress. The crisp line and broad planes of the figure’s strong profile and stance against a rugged landscape convey her power and authority. The heavy fur cloak slipping from her shoulder and her partially nude form create undercurrents of suggestive playfulness, as does the placement of the goat. Although the model has not been firmly identified, the huntress might depict artist and writer Elizabeth Eyre de Lanux, one of poet Natalie Barney’s lovers during the 1920s."
