Original painting from France: French school of the XIXth century, this is a study in oil on canvas featuring Charlotte Morel attributed to Victor Pierre Ménard (1857-1938). The surface of the canvas is smooth with some small thicknesses on the clothes of the model. The posture, the facial expression and the chiaroscuro are in accordance with the codes of the academy. Charlotte Morel poses here in an intimately relaxed atmosphere, with her bare shoulders.
