Henri Moreau, Portrait Of A Nude On Chaise Longue

Henri Moreau, Portrait Of A Nude On Chaise Longue

This early 20th-century oil painting by Belgian artist Henri Moreau (1869-1943) depicts a nude laying on a chaise longue. She’s facing away from us, which brings an added layer of sensuality.

Who was this woman? Did Moreau simply hire her for the sitting with the intention of selling the work through a gallery? Or did he know her well, a lover perhaps? There’s certainly an element of modesty, which could suggest the latter.
