A young woman looks at us with great serenity. The red flower in her hair, her evening dress, her light tan are reminiscent of a Latin dancer. Sensual, it is surrounded by three very colorful birds. Are these pretenders? A first bird, very small, is perched on his shoulder. His proud air gives a funny impression of ridicule, like a vain little male who thinks he has conquered the beautiful without being aware of his insignificance in his eyes ... Another bird flying above her, not very big either, is he trying to get his attention? Finally, does the quetzal, king of exotic birds, count on its beauty alone to seduce her?
The orange background, which could be a facade of a Cuban house or the Caminito de Buenos Aires, gives us a feeling of well-being when contemplating the painting.
