This painting by Eleonora Ragusa, an artist of Japanese origin, expresses the synthesis of the different styles she embodied. She was the wife of the painter Vincenzo Ragusa and an exquisite interpreter of the Art Nouveau style of the end of the century through painting and applied arts. The work shows the original language she developed: the exquisite oriental themes, as in the traditional clothing and Japanese landscape, are combined with traditional Western references, evident in the faces and the delicate pastel colours she employed.
