Description
Sculptor Yolanda Belloli was a close friend of Noggle’s who encouraged her interest in art and was a frequent subject of her photographs. In this portrait of her at age 86, Noggle shows Yolanda as a vibrant figure, adorned with earrings, necklace, and purple silk hat.
The subject is the artist’s friend, Yolanda Belloli, (1894-1984), an American artist known for her sculpture. Boston-born Yolanda married the Italian architect Count Giorgio Belloli and they bought land along the Santa Fe River (1379 Upper Canyon Road) in 1930 and the next year Cason del Triunfo (House of Triumph) was completed. The couple separated in 1947 and Yolanda remained in the home until her death in 1983. Belloli was important in sparking Noggle’s interest in art. She was a frequent subject of Noggle’s photographs. Belloli left the house to Noggle in her will and Noggle sold it.
