In this elegant portrait by Paul Cesar Helleu, a young woman stares softly at the viewer, lightly meeting their gaze.

-The gentleness of the portrait is reflected in the loose gestural draughtsmanship of Helleu. This looseness and ease of depiction suggests that the work was finished in situ, rather than through a series of studies, which is how Helleu preferred to work.

-The appearance of a chair in the lower right hand corner suggests an informal setting, and implies that the artist was well-acquainted with the sitter.

-A further softness is brought to the work by the use of chalk and by the harmony of three main colours; green, yellow and peach. Furthermore, the use of peach on the sitter’s blushing cheeks and lips combined with her bright blue eyes give her an angelic look.
