Woman at Her Secretary. René-François-Xavier Prinet (French 1861-1946). Oil on canvas.
Prinet is noted for his bourgeois interiors and portraits. The lady writes in a well appointed interior space, perhaps a parlour, with artwork, upholstered chairs, wallpaper, and a fine secretary with books. She is dressed casually, in a short skirt, which suggests a later date.
