Observations

Aline Masson, the young French beauty featured in the present work, was Madrazo's wife and favorite model. Here she is depicted holding a hat decorated with flowers seemingly lost in thought. His palette combines simple yet bold colors that have a monumental effect even in his small scale works.

In addition to being among the most distinguished and significant Spanish painters resident in Paris during the 19th Century, Madrazo's work won numerous awards and the keen attention of collectors outside of France, particularly in New York and London. Representative examples of Madrazo's work are still housed in the fabled mansions prominent families during the Gilded Age, such as Marble House and the Breakers in Newport, Rhode Island. The Vanderbilt family were perhaps Madrazo's most faithful patrons, their grand society portraits still on display in Biltmore House Estate in North Carolina.
