Preparing for a night out. Beauty with Pink Veil was painted by Alphonsine de Challié (1858-1904), a female artist who focused on capturing female beauty. De Challié may not be a household name these days, but she belonged to the first generation of female artists in France who were able to take art classes with a renowned painter. Charles Joshua Chaplin (1825-1891) was a French painter who opened his studio for art classes to women, and among the ones who took this opportunity was not only De Challié, but also the French artists Louise Abbéma, Madeleine Lemaire, and Marie Joséphine Nicolas, the American Mary Cassatt, and the English artist Louise Jopling. De Challié would paint similar themes as her teacher Chaplin, but for this painting she was inspired by another female artist Berthe Morisot. While it seems to me that she is preparing herself for a night out, it could also be the case that she is undressing at the end of the day. In any case, the work captures female beauty from a unique angle. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #FemaleArtist #FemalePainter #WomanArtist #FrenchArt #FrenchArtist #FrenchPainter #Beauty #Veil #Pink #NightOut #FemaleBeauty #Feminine #Portrait #Pink #PinkVeil #AlphonsinedeChallie #Challie #DeChallie
