A Girl in Pink Leaning on a Chair

c. 1870

RCIN 409037

Alfred Stevens was famous in his day for his depictions of fashionable Parisian women. This work is one of a series of studio scenes, a popular subject for artists in the nineteenth century. The model, dressed in an elegant silk gown, takes a break from posing to admire the painting on the easel – the artist’s presence is implied by the palette and brushes on the chair.
