During mid-1900’s and 1910’s Charles Camoin, member of the short-lived Fauvist movement painted a series of canvases representing the world of brothels which he explored alongside his friend Albert Marquet. Painted in rich, vibrant colors, the present works is an outstanding example of this series, alluding to both Manet’s Olympia and Toulouse-Lautrec’s scenes of the Parisian demi-monde.

The style of Camoin’s early work was influenced by the Provence tradition: striking colours applied liberally in bold brush strokes, to the point where some of his works were wrongly attributed to Paul Gauguin. After 1905 and his travels with Matisse and Marquet, Camoin began to focus more on light than on colour. Camoin’s bright, luminous palette was also influenced by Renoir whom he met in 1918.
