Joaquin Sorolla, Portrait of a Young Woman in a Hat, c. 1912, oil on canvas, Private Collection

Spanish Impressionist Joaquin Sorolla (1863-1923) is said to have been quite attracted to his subject, who might have been then popular singer Raquel Meller.  While the identity of the pensive model of Portrait of a Woman with Black Hat by American artist Frank Duveneck (1848-1919) is unknown.
