Portrait of a Lady (The Pearl Necklace)
Childe Hassam painted this bust portrait of a woman in broken, textured strokes. She is dressed in a yellow off-the-shoulder top and wears a pearl necklace and her hair in a bun. Her dress and the rosy peach color of her skin contrasts with the light green background.
