About Portrait of Aline

“Portrait of Aline” is an artwork created by Paul Gauguin in 1884 in Amagerbro, Copenhagen, Denmark. This portrait, executed in oil on panel, is a notable piece from Gauguin’s Impressionist period. The genre of the piece is a portrait, characterizing the artist’s capacity for personal depiction. Unfortunately, it is held in a private collection, and as such, it is not easily accessible to the general public for view.

The artwork presents a young female subject in profile, suggesting a moment of introspection or perhaps a quiet gaze directed out of the frame. The soft, subdued palette and the delicate rendering of the subject’s features are indicative of Gauguin’s skill and style during his Impressionist phase. The background appears muted and dark, allowing the viewer’s focus to remain on the subject. The border of the portrait features decorative elements, which add an intricacy to the otherwise straightforward composition, giving a rather intimate framing to the central figure. The brushstrokes and color choices exhibit the influence of the Impressionist movement, capturing the essence of the moment through the artist’s eyes.
