La Paloma is a 1904 painting by a Catalonian painter Isidre Nonell, which is exhibited at the National Art Museum of Catalonia.

Description[edit]

La Paloma, draped in burnt orange against a dark green background, faces away from the viewer as if in deep thought. In this painting, Nonell sharply accentuates her features and uses bold strokes to further define her.

Composition[edit]

The portrait is placed off center and nearly fills the frame. The woman, mostly in shadow faces the muted light.
