Self portrait, 1923 Romaine Brooks, born Beatrice Romaine Goddard was an American painter who worked mostly in Paris and Capri. The fortune she inherited from her mother allowed her to ignore social conventions. She could also afford to go her own direction in her painting style. She limited her palette to mostly shades of gray with tints of ocher and sepia, giving her work a soulful, wintry feeling. Dismissed in her time, Brooks's work has increased in value and interest since the 1980s.
