Madeleine Lemaire - After the Ball

Today I present a work by French painter Madeleine Lemaire. In comparison to the more elaborate scenes I've shared thusfar in this series, I admire Lemaire's "Afternthr Ball" for its straight-forwaed yet effective portrait of a young woman sleeping after her evening escapade. She looks exhausted! The artist's delicate use of light and shadow communicates an affection toward the subject, and as the viewer I find that sentiment endearing. Good night!
