Painted in 1894, Femme de maison belongs to a period of intensive study for Lautrec, who found his greatest subjects in the demi-monde of performers and prostitutes. The last years of the artist’s life were spent frequenting the maisons closes of Paris, often residing for weeks at a time in the established brothels of the Rue des Moulins, Rue Joubert and Rue d’Ambroise. Despite his aristocratic lineage and privileged upbringing in the south of France, Lautrec found himself drawn to the fringes of popular society after moving to the capital city, and quickly assimilated into the bohemian circles of artists, writers and their muses. Perhaps due to his own physical limitations—traits inherited from the intermarriage of his pedigreed family—Lautrec found solace and understanding in the company of such marginalized characters, and in turn observed his friends and subjects with a keen eye and lack of judgement.

Lautrec’s sketches and paintings from this time reveal naturalistic and unidealized accounts of working women who are frequently depicted in between engagements, casually leaning on couches, adjusting their clothing, or talking among themselves. These accounts of Parisian brothels and their employees do not aim to tantalize; rather these calm and quotidian scenes lend a sense of normalcy to the women’s profession and reflect a candor which Lautrec found lacking in typical artists’ models (see fig. 1). An anonymous portrait, the present work depicts one such femme de maison in a poised and quiet setting. The profile view, often used by Lautrec in his sketches and preliminary studies, here is employed in the service of a fully rendered painting, in effect elevating the standing of his subject by the more formal means of portraiture.

First recorded in the Baumgarten collection, Femme de maison later belonged to Maurice Joyant, a close personal friend of the artist and major proponent of his work. After Lautrec’s untimely death in 1901, Joyant directed the artist’s estate and helped establish the Musée Toulouse-Lautrec in his hometown of Albi.
