Portrait of a Young Woman (1869)

Pierre Auguste Cot: Portrait of a Young Woman

Although he was influenced by multiple academic sources, Cot based much of his artistic output on the subjects and style of his teacher Bouguereau. The Academic style was in its finest form when it came to portraits. In many of Cot’s portraits, there is an undercurrent of eroticism flowing just beneath the surface.
