The circa 1920 pastel "Élégante au chapeau bleu" by Louis Icart captures the essence of early 20th-century Parisian elegance with his characteristic flair. This work showcases Icart's ability to blend delicate beauty with an impressionistic style, creating a piece that is both timeless and evocative.

In this pastel, Icart portrays a refined woman seated gracefully, her posture exuding a sense of relaxed poise. The subtlety of the pastel medium allows for soft lines and gentle shading, giving the figure a dreamlike quality. The woman's attire, likely a fashionable dress of the era, is rendered with fluid strokes that hint at luxurious fabrics and sophisticated design.

The focal point of the composition is undoubtedly the woman’s face, which Icart captures with delicate precision. Her softly rouged cheeks and slightly parted lips suggest a demure, yet confident expression. The eyes, gazing directly at the viewer, add an intimate connection, inviting us to ponder her thoughts and emotions.

A striking element of the piece is the blue hat, which not only gives the artwork its title but also adds a splash of vibrant color against the muted tones of the woman's dress and the background. The hat, adorned with delicate details, complements her elegant ensemble and serves as a symbol of the fashion and style of the 1920s.

Icart's signature can be seen at the bottom of the artwork, confirming its authenticity and adding to its value. The signature, like the rest of the piece, is done in a fluid, effortless manner, indicative of Icart’s confident hand and practiced skill.

"Élégante au chapeau bleu" is more than just a portrait; it is a window into the glamour and sophistication of the Roaring Twenties. Louis Icart, known for his depictions of fashionable Parisian women, often infused his work with a sense of romanticism and allure. This pastel is a quintessential example of his talent for capturing the ephemeral beauty of his subjects.
