La Signora Elisabeth Albrecht (c.1925). Felice Casorati (Italian 1883-1963). Oil on board. Pinakothek der Moderne. The portrait of Albrecht with her book is dispassionate. The pose is formal, the sitter looking up to her right; otherwise it is essentially symmetrical. Albrecht’s face shows little emotion, typical of Casrati’s works during this period. Although he received some criticism for his style, Casorati shrugged off the criticism.
