"Like the portrait of Madame Pailleron, the picture represents a woman of style and sophistication. In painting the sitter in her personal surroundings, Sargent is drawing on the tradition of fashionable figures in interiors by artists like James Tissot and Alfred Stevens, the elegant dresss and the aesthetic furnishings and accessories reflecting and defining her artistic tastes. "
