This rare event, which is abundantly reproduced in raw earth, has all the stylistic characteristics that
have made Carrier-Belleuse a success. The emphasis is on the sensuality of the girl's face and the sense of detail,
with this drapery with virtuoso folds and the delicacy of the pinecone shaped clasp.
