worldpaintings:

Edouard Manet
Irma Brunner in a Black Hat, (The Viennese), c. 1880, pastel on paper, Louvre, Paris. 
Between 1879 and 1882, Manet produced a stunning series of pastel  portraits of women. This medium offered him freshness, lively colour and  a powdered material that flattered the face more than paint.
Here Irma Brunner embodies all the elegance of the 1880s, which she  radiates in abundance. Manet chooses a decorative style that also  recalls the Italian portraits of the 15th century. Everything is  contrasted and outlined: the profile of her face and velvety black hair,  her pink blouse standing out against the grey background. The touch of  red on her lips spices up and adds a certain piquancy to this elegant  harmony.
