Context: The woman's relaxed pose and the beach glimpsed through the open window contribute to the tranquil mood of the painting. The bright colors, especially on the sun-drenched sand, suggest a summer vacation by the sea. The ruffled dress, which casts soft white reflections on the sitter's face, appears in three other paintings by Tissot. The sitter may be Kathleen Newton, Tissot's British mistress from 1876 until her death in 1882.
