Portrait of a Young Woman

Oil on panel
Signed and dated “E. Eisman-Semenowsky, Paris 1882” (lower right)

A beautiful young woman exudes romantic charm in this captivating portrait by Polish artist Emile Eisman-Semenowsky. Born in a Russian-annexed area of Poland in 1857, Eisman-Semenowsky immigrated to Paris in the 1880s, where he became a well-known portraitist. His impressive oeuvre is dominated by airy and romantic portraits of idealized women, frequently adorned with flowers and stylish clothing, as is seen in this delightful example. This blue-eyed beauty, with flowers in her hair and a luxurious fur collar, epitomizes the bourgeois elegance popular in France during his time.

Along with his portraits of women, Eisman-Semenowsky also developed a fascination with the Orientalist influences that were appearing in the work of his contemporaries. Many of his works feature lavish Oriental details, with beautiful women clad in sumptuous and colorful clothing. Still, his decorative and romantic portraits, imbued with an unmistakable grace and beauty, remain his most sought after works on the market today.
