Romaine Brooks painted this portrait of her friend Una Troubridge in a position of pointed dominance. With a disapproving glare, she holds one of her dogs in check by the collar. In a letter to her friend, Brooks described the portrait as a glimpse of the New Woman — “a sign of the age which may amuse future feminists.”
