Portrait of Emily Warren Roebling Analysis
In 1896 Carolus-Duran painted Emily Warren Roebling, the engineer responsible for the completion of the Brooklyn Bridge after her husband fell ill.
Carolus-Duran chose to paint her full-length in this work – a fact that attests to the sitter’s social standing – and richly dressed in a golden dress, with the train of her dress a deep scarlet.
Carolus-Duran’s Portrait of Emily Warren Roebling is in the Brooklyn Museum in New York City, United States of America.
