Una, Lady Troubridge. 1924. source
Romaine Brooks often put an animal in her portraits she thought represented the sitter's personality. At the time, this portrait was considered to be a sort of a caricature, almost making fun of Lady Troubridge. I don't think it was really intended to be, it is too reverent. It is one of my favorite portraits, the eyes are so intense that if the lipstick wasn't so orange to balance them out, they would bore a hole in you. This lady misses nothing with her agate eyes.
