Nota del catálogo

In 1882, after eleven successful years painting in London, Tissot returned to Paris and chose pastel as his new medium, recognizing an opportunity to develop new patronage. Public interest in pastel was revived by a widespread interest in eighteenth century art, and the innovative work of contemporary artists like Edgar Degas and Édouard Manet. 

By 1895, when the present work was executed, Tissot had already completed two journeys to the Middle East and was immersed in his illustrations of the New Testament. Interestingly, the present work demonstrates that Tissot never truly abandoned the subject of fashionably dressed ladies of society.
