Sophie Brzeska 1913 by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska 1891-1915

Sophie Brzeska. Henri Gaudier-Brzeska. 1913.

This beautiful portrait is of Sophie Brzeska, a Polish writer and the muse of Henri Gaudier-Brzeska. They met in Paris when she was almost twice his age, and Henri soon took her name although they never married.  They had an intense but chaste relationship which ended abruptly with Henri’s death -he was killed in the trenches in WWI at the young age of 23.
