One title has been suggested, with varying punctuation:
'Violet and Rose: Carmen qui rit' is the preferred version.
A half-length portrait of a woman, in vertical oval format. She is wearing a dark pink v-necked dress, with a pink necklace. She has black hair with a central parting, and poses against a dark background. She is seen in three-quarter view to left, and her hands are clasped in front of her, probably over the back of a chair.
This is one of several portraits of Carmen Rossi (fl. 1880/1901), proprietor of the Académie Carmen, which include Rose et or: La Napolitaine [YMSM 505], Violet and Rose: Carmen qui rit [YMSM 506], and Harmony in Rose and Green: Carmen [YMSM 507].
She is wearing the same dress as in Harmony in Rose and Green: Carmen [YMSM 507].
