GOODWILL ART GUIDE — Painting Everyday Life


DRESSING



The French have a better word for this subject: they call it making 'la toilette', which covers far more than people simply getting into their clothes.
Most of these paintings show women and girls in various activities for which they do not usually have an audience, such as washing, and doing their hair.
Rembrandt's mistress was portrayed as 'real' long before the 19th century, when 'nudes' finally lost their 'idealised' status and artists could paint them as women. However, it is noteworthy that 'dressing' pictures still rarely depict men.
