So different from the artist's signature style of fussy interiors crowded with different small prints on clothing, furniture, and wallpaper.

It is. When I first encountered Vuillard, I thought all he did was fussy interiors, and although they can be charming, it does get old. But it turns out he did a lot more than that. I wish he had done more like this!

I think it is great compositionally.

Thanks for the link, Bluebonnet! Now I see Degas, too.

I thought I sensed the influence of Les Nabis, here. Wow, it sure went for a pretty penny! Thanks for the link, Blue.

Here's a catalogue note from Sotheby's:

Yes, it's so uncharacteristic. Makes me wonder if someone bet him he couldn't do it and this was his attempt to prove them wrong.

Bluebonnet

I think you nailed it, jkc!

Now you've made me think! For me, it's the intriquing use of color blocking in an intimate scene of two women doing something together--and those colors!!

Bluebonnet

You made me laugh! I feel the same way!

I like this painting, and I don't know why, exactly. Thanks for posting.
