Alfred Stevens: 'The Present'

Explore the paintings

Stevens specialised in paintings of fashionably dressed young women. This picture, with its modest scale and intimate subject, is typical of his work.

The artist painted this subject on at least five occasions. One version was exhibited in 1866 but this one appears to be later.
