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


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.


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