The artist’s depiction of this mysterious sitter is heightened by the intensity of the burnished tones used to highlight the hair and the lips of the young woman. Her darkened eyes gaze out into the distance, revealing an enigmatic expression and inviting the viewer to partake in the intimacy of the scene. This seductive portrait reveals a combination of realism and romanticism, while clearly falling into the category of modernist compositions.

"Trained under the highly respected master painter, Gustav Moreau, Guerin soon started to exhibit his work at the Salon de la Societe Nationale des Beaux Arts de Paris, followed by the Salon d'Automne and des Independants. He exhibited his work at the presitigous Galerie Druet in Paris, followed by shows in Munich in 1898, 1900 and 1911, Brussels in 1908, Amsterdam in 1912 and Rome in 1913. Guerin's was given a major sow at the Carnegie Art Institute in 1922, as well as in Dallas, Tx., to public acclaiim.
He was subjugated by the luminous and vibrant tonalities of the Impressionist painters Renoir and Monet, and used them to portray intimate and poetic themes in his work.
Guerin revolted against academic painting, preferring to use a palette of bold and radiant colors that were shocking to a society that had not yet been introduced to Fauvism. The poet Guillaume Appolinaire considered him a highly gifted artist, and his portraiture and interior scenes are seductive and serenely radiant.
