Frederick Carl Frieseke (1874-1939)
The Bird Cage, ca. 1910
Oil on canvas
John Butler Talcott Fund - 1917.2

Only the back of this model is shown, yet the sense of style is complete. During the first part of the twentieth century, the feminine form was clad in soft materials such as those used in this dressing gown. The loose drape of the fabric is accentuated by the fall of the soft sheer collar and cuffs. The gown slips provocatively from one shoulder, emphasizing the intimate nature of this scene of a woman at home.
