SValadonSelfPortrait1883

Suzanne Valadon’s work totals over 475 paintings, nearly 275 drawings, and 31 etchings (these do not include the many works lost or destroyed over the years). This is an 1883 self-portrait: she was 18 and gave birth to Maurice Utrillo that year. An artist’s model, she taught herself to paint by watching how Berthe Morisot, Renoir and Toulouse-Lautrec did it.
