"Fumette Standing" 1859 etching
by J. A. M. Whistler

This oil painting evolved by exploring the possibility of translating the strong personality of Whistler's mid-1800's model Eloise, a modiste, from Whistler's etching of her "Fumette Standing".

Among the other grisettes, in the Paris garden where dancing went on and where Whistler met her – they called her the tigresse.
