Maria Ricotti in ‘The Temptress’

It's been a while since Dutch artist Kees van Dongen (1877-1968), originally one of the Fauvists, last featured in the blog. This portrait of actress Maria Ricotti was made in 1921, when he had started using more subdued colours. More on van Dongen in the wikipedia article linked to below.
