When Jawlensky painted the portrait of Madame Curie in 1905, he was still searching for artistic direction. The image is surprisingly realistic, his former training. He brightens the effect of the dark dress by introducing bright red, white, and yellow into the background, and the crowded colors, together with a painting hanging on the wall behind Madame Curie, provide an impression of opulence. In 1905, after the Nobel Prize, the Curies achieved a sort of celebrity status in France.
