This watercolour is typical of his tendency to depict – with fast impulsive brushstrokes – aristocratic sitters. Here, Boldini has chosen to use a subdued colour palette with infuses the work with modernity. The soft colours fill the work with femininity and intimacy while the sweeping lines of her form give a real sense of movement. It appears that Boldini has captured his sitter in a fleeting moment as she glides around Paris’ boulevards.
