Portrait of Emily Warren Roebling: Carolus-Duran

Carolus-Duran: Portrait of Emily Warren Roebling

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.
