After the Bath

Pierre Bonnard French

Not on view

Bonnard's painting of the daily routine of bathing, done from memory, captures the details of light reflected in a mirror and pointy red slippers. The woman is probably Marthe (Maria Boursin; 1869–1942), whom Bonnard met in 1893 and married in 1925.
