Portrait of a Woman

Karl Pärsimägi Portrait of a Woman 1936 oil, canvas 41.2 x 32.7 cm

Pärsimägi was an acclaimed artist in the 1930’s. His paintings were rich in colour and attracted a great deal of attention. The subject of this painting is not surprising in this case: Pärsimägi often depicted women in reflective poses whose facial features become indistinct in the surrounding interior.

Pärsimägi was in Estonia for the last time in 1936 since he left for Paris the following year and never returned from there.
