Mde. Lili Grenier, Henri De Toulouse Lautrec, o/c, circa 1888
From her life-size oil portrait hanging in one gallery of the de Young's William S. Paley Collection, a Taste for Modernism exhibition, Madame Grenier glances at her visitors with disdain. In addition to his skill as a satiric painter of Paris-Cabarets' images, Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec was a gifted portraitist. He was known to be amused by Mde. Grenier who at 20-something had secured a marriage to a wealthy man and manages in this 1888 portrait to put into her face an air of superior, self-satisfied indolence.
The painting is not necessarily for me, but I found it to be more memorable than I realized when I saw a recent newspaper photo of her current 20-something look alike:
