In the Garden
Giovanni Boldini

The distant row of rooftops suggests that this small garden may be on the outskirts of Montmartre, where Boldini lived for several years. The garden has attracted a visitor; with a few brushstrokes the artist suggests the presence of a woman, dressed in black and wearing a hat, sitting by a flower bed and turning her head to examine a bloom.
