The portrait of Izabela Czartoryska is one of the greatest achievements of Kazimierz Wojnakowski
in the field of portrait art. We can see shoulder-length model that was shown on a gray neutral background from which her outfit, in the artist's favorite red color, clearly stands out. The floral shawl is reminiscent of a half-folk costume, probably gypsy, which had to do with the Puławy theater, in which Izabela Czartoryska took an active part as an actress in the plays of "Gypsies" by Franciszek Dionize Kniaźnin. At the portrait, the model's beautiful, dark eyes draw attention. They are a real decoration of the face and overshadow various beauty flaws, which Wojniakowski has not overlooked, including too wide lips, big nose and gray hair.
