Mela MUTER (Warsaw 1876 - Paris 1967)
Portrait of a woman with a necklace / Portrait of a young girl
Circa 1930
Oil on canvas recto verso
63 x 49,5 cm
Signed on one side lower left "Muter"

Mela Muter arrives in 1901 in Paris with her husband Michal Muttermilch and enrolls at the Colarossi Academy and then at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. She quickly becomes a Montparnasse personality, exhibits at the Salon d'Automne and the Salon des Tuileries. Settled in Paris where she has her studio, she makes noticed exhibitions notably at Druet's; she travels and paints particularly in Brittany and Barcelona where she organizes a big exhibition at the Dalmau Gallery.
Mela Muter realizes this work in the 1930s. On the front is portrayed a woman with a necklace and red dress, sitting in an interior; on the reverse is a young girl with blue eyes and a pink shawl covering her head. The warm and luminous colours, the work tuned to the texture and the colours of the skin tone which are declined according to the light are typical of the artist.
