Alfred Stevens studied in his native Brussels and moved to Paris in 1844. During the Second Empire he established himself as a leading fashionable painter, specialising in well-dressed ladies in sumptuous interiors. This informal study of a model in a smock has a freeness reminiscent of Stevens' friend Manet. It was purchased by Margaret Davies in 1918.
