This bold, abstract work is striking in coloration and composition. The subject, Ambroise Vollard (Saint-Denis, La Réunion, 1866 – Versailles, 1939), famous art dealer, publisher, and collector, is central to this piece, depicted in pastel shades of yellow and lilac-white. Placed against a soft aquamarine background, seated in a highly geometric chair of black and white. Conveying his subject in his renowned abstract style, placing Vollard in profile with his two eyes confronting the viewer head on. In his arms, Vollard cradles a curious brown striped cat that appears with claws bared and legs upright, as if lying on its back.
