Delphine Rivé is a modern European woman who was born in St Malo, Brittany, but now lives in London and works across Europe. She is a charming, vivacious and competitive character who combines a highly successful business career as a managing director in a large international consulting firm with an equally successful tennis career. The international tennis federation currently ranks her No 3 in the world for her age group. Delphine has also recently been invited to serve on a foreign trade advisory board for France.
The portrait was inspired by the portraits of John Singer Sargent, and other painters of Europe and America at the end of the C19. I trust that it presents Delphine as the confident, powerful and capable individual that she is.
