The subject of this striking portrait is Klinghoffer’s fellow artist Orovida Pissarro, granddaughter of Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro and daughter of Lucien. The Pissarros were family friends of Klinghoffer’s.
Although Orovida is depicted at leisure, rather than at work in the studio, the vivid red and blue palette and the ornamental cat behind her reflect the exotic influences and animal subjects that she favoured in her own work.
