-In this elegant drawing, Paul César Helleu has rapidly drawn this stylishly attired woman using his signature loose gestural draughtmanship. This looseness and ease of depiction suggests that the work was finished in situ, rather than through a series of studies, which is how Helleu preferred to work.

-Although this drawing was clearly composed rapidly, Helleu has taken careful care in depicting the sitter’s fashionable dress: her fur hat with jaunty feather; her fur cuffs; fashionable collared skirt suit; and dainty shoes. Additionally, he has delicately rendered her up to date makeup and hairstyle by judicious application of colour. Paul César Helleu has created an exquisite drawing of a society lady at rest on her ornate settee; his trademark.
