Rogier van der Weyden: Portrait of a Lady
Portrait of a Lady
Object type painting
English: This is an outstanding example of the abstract elegance characteristic of Rogier's late portraits. Although the identity of the sitter is unknown, her air of self–conscious dignity suggests that she is a member of the nobility. Her costume and severely plucked eyebrows and hairline are typical of those favored by highly placed ladies of the Burgundian court. The dress, with its dark bands of fur, almost merges with the background. The composition is built from the geometric shapes that form the lines of the woman's veil, neckline, face and arms, and by the fall of the light that illuminates her face and headdress. Her hands are delicately clasped in prayer.
Español: La composición está formada por formas geométricas que modelan las líneas del velo, el cuello, el rostro y los brazos y por la caída de la luz que ilumina su faz y su peinado.Es el único retrato de una mujer firmado por el propio van der Weyden, si bien se conocen más retratos atribuidos a él o a su taller, aunque no se conoce ni el nombre de la dama ni el título original de la obra.
Русский: Портрет состоит из геометрических фигур, которые формируют вуаль, вырезы платья, лицо и руки модели, а также свет, который освещает ее лицо и головной убор. Констраст темноты и света увеличивают почти неестественную красоту модели, добавляя ей готической элегантности.
