Madame cezanne in a yellow chair - by Paul Cezanne

In the painting Madame Cezanne in a Red Armchair, she is shown wearing an outfit of moire satin, with a plain jacket fastened by a large bow. The full skirt occupies almost half the painting. She is sitting, leaning slightly to the left, in a red armchair decorated with tassels. Her hair is fastened on the top of her head, which is unusua because in most portraits she is shown with hair parted in the centre and drawn back froi her face in a way that emphasizes its roundness.
