Accession Number: 71-P-84
Gallery Label:

Carolus-Duran was a friend of avant-garde painters, but his more academic style reflects his decision to pursue lucrative commissions as a society portraitist. His work combines elements of contemporary Impressionism with more conventional painting techniques. The artist’s use of quick, loose brushwork owes at least as much, however, to Spanish old masters such as Diego Velásquez, whose work Carolus-Duran greatly admired, as to contemporaries such as Edouard Manet. The model for Artist in her Studio is believed to be the artist’s wife, Pauline Croizette, who declared her profession as an artist on their marriage certificate and continued to exhibit works in the Salon after their marriage.
