Chocolate Amatller Luna Coffee-COPY
by Rafael De Penagos Zalabardo
1914 Young Aristocratic Woman Requesting Tea.
A lifelong resident of Madrid, de Penagos was doubtless acquainted with many aristocratic young women such as this. If she were not clearly in a commercial establishment, she could almost be the unseen summoner of the previous image. Although she may be gesturing to a companion, her pencil suggests that she is probably alone and simply requesting a refill. Whether she is or is not well-known (the name Lita Cassayas under her portrait is another mystery), the details are stellar here. The sumptuous pillows, the stained-glass lamp-cum-epergne spilling over with fruit all demonstrate the same passion for color, pattern and texture so evident in the prior poster. Rare.
