Woman at her toilet

“Toilet” is a painting in oil on cardboard, measuring 67 x 54 cm and kept at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris; it is dated 1889. In the painting there is the naturalistic influence of Degas, a painter towards which Lautrec has great admiration. The girl is represented in a moment of intimacy, a moment of almost meditative recollection, without the garments of her work, with no mask; the image is seen from behind and this accentuates the fragility of the young woman.

“Toilet” is a painting in oil on cardboard, measuring 67 x 54 cm and kept at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris; it is dated 1889. Often, in his paintings, Lautrec represents scenes of ordinary life focusing on people and not on places and depicting clusters of decadent realities. The initial title of the painting, made in one of the appointment houses that the artist loved to attend, was “Rousse”, later changed into “Toilet”. In the painting there is the naturalistic influence of Degas, a painter towards which Lautrec has great admiration. The framing of the scene, almost a snapshot taken from above with a camera, a stolen image, unequivocally refers to some of his colleague's masterpieces. The girl is represented in a moment of intimacy, a moment of almost meditative recollection, without the garments of her work, with no mask; the image is seen from behind and this accentuates the fragility of the young woman. The girl is sitting, relaxed on the towels after her bath; the harmonious back, the lean arms and legs, the warm red hair gathered in an elegant knot make the figure dignified and innocent, in contrast with her work and the ugliness of life: this toilet suggests something liberating, almost a purification. The room that surrounds her is poor, without frills. The colours are harmonious, and the tones of the blue stand out, which make the image delicate and light. The technique used demonstrates the skill of the artist, who spreads the colours using quick and well-marked brushstrokes, which make the scene alive and real, without getting lost in the meticulous representation of the details. The painter preserves the framing of Impressionism, but he tries to deepen the meanings: in fact, his themes are not graceful nor festive.
