About This Image
The photographers' stamp is on the verso. Van Dongen entered the Parisian art scene at the height of Fauvism during the years of the Salon des Independants and Salon d'Automne. He was very successful yet the sensual depictions of the nude figure also gained him notoriety. He was born in Rotterdam in 1877 and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts there from 1892 to 1897. Van Dongen settled in Paris in 1901. After the Fauve years, he became his own art dealer in Paris. Later, disillusioned and bitter, he began painting portraits of high society which can be viewed as an extension of his satirical sketches of aristocracy from earlier on in his career.
