Eva Gonzalès was a 19th century Franch painter associated with the Impressionist circle.
More specifically, after studying with portrait painter Charles Chaplin, she became the only formal pupil of Édouard Manet. Manet’s influence is certainly visible in some of her work.
Manet painted a portrait of her in which she is posed as if painting one of Manet’s own works, and she posed for a number of other painters in the wider Impressionist circle.
Gonzalès died young, at the age of 34, while giving birth. I’m uncertain how prolific she was as a painter, as sources of information and images are somewhat scattered and incomplete.
I’m particularly drawn to some of her still life subjects, in which she has obviously absorbed Manet’s lessons, and begun to go her own way with them.
