About Portrait of Ingeborg Thaulow

The artwork, “Portrait of Ingeborg Thaulow,” is an oil on panel creation by artist Paul Gauguin in 1877, produced in Paris, France. It is an exemplar of the Impressionist movement, focusing on the portrayal of an individual, hence classified as a portrait. Presently, the artwork is housed within a private collection.

The artwork offers a moody and introspective depiction of Ingeborg Thaulow, characterized by a limited color palette and brisk brushstrokes typical of the Impressionist style. The subject is presented in profile against a dark, indistinct background, which adds a sense of depth to the composition. Subtle highlights and shadows play upon the contours of Thaulow’s face and attire, capturing a reflective moment rather than mere physical likeness. The work’s introspective quality, and Gauguin’s focus on the complex play of light and color over detailed representation, allude to the artist’s evolving style, which would later become pivotal in the Post-Impressionist movement.
