The first description of this painting could refer to Zevaco who, in The Pardaillan (1907), wrote: “But, from the supreme harmony of her attitudes, her haughty head and her dazzling eyes emerged such a sovereign authority that she seemed to overpower whomever she would bow before."
The artist painter Nadia Vuillaume endeavored to voluntarily accentuate the grace of her model thanks to the lines, the hair put up in a bun, extricating the graceful back of her neck, frail shoulder imbued with femininity and in contradiction with the determined character of her model.
Here, the tawny colors show the determined and intellectual side of her model.
