Suzanne Santje (1873-1947) was a Philadelphia-born actress who studied music in Berlin and drama in Paris. Eakins shows her not on stage but during a private moment in her study, dressed in a vibrant gown and surrounded by objects, including a script of the romantic drama Camille, and a portrait of her father, Charles Shearer Keyser.
