About

This oil pastel drawing focuses on the contrast of light and dark as Morisot creates the portrait of her sister. The darkness of her dress blurs together, but Morisot remains in control with the transparent quality of lace on her sleeves. Edma Pontillion's fair skin is noticeable on such a dark background, and the right hand's fingers are visible through the transparency of the lace sleeve. Her model's face is the main subject of the painting, with the contrast of her black dress and dark brown hair bringing her face more into focus. The surrounding background of the figure adds light and color to the portrait, keeping the tone positive. The slice of blue behind her head cuts through the dull colors, while the blue is incorporated into the patterning of the surrounding fabrics of the drapes and couch. The same blue is also found in the model's ring. The artist's sister sits next to another colorful object, with blurred warm colors and what seems to be a flower sticking out in front.

We Offer High Quality

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free matt board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
