Prima Di Andare A Letto (Before Bedtime) by French Painter Delphin Enjolras (1857 – 1945) of the Academic Movement who specialized in creating portraits, nudes and interior paintings using oil, watercolor and pastels. His preferred paintings was genre scenes of young women illuminated by lamplight.
A portrait of a young lady wearing a silk negligee sitting in a loveseat that is situated underneath a medium size wall mirror, reading a letter before she goes to bed by the light of a table lamp that rest on a table, along with a vase that holds a bouquet of flowers and a small jar behind the vase. The image has beautiful warm tones and is an idealized image of the leisurely way upper class women of the time lived.
This is an oil on canvas version of similar piece he did in pastels called The Letter.
