Portrait of Jeanne Kefer (1885) by Fernand Khnopff (Belgian 1858 - 1923)

Jeanne Kefer, daughter of the artists's friend Gustave Kefer, stands on a porch with her back against a closed door. Khnopff used his academic training to create elegant, modern images suggesting subjective states of mind. The adult-size door frames the girl's small figure, and the edge of the floor tilts down to the right, evoking a child's world scaled for grown-ups.
