Clearly this painting with the nude portrait of a standing woman with large hat shows the influence of Auguste Renoir, with whom Abel Faivre had been close friends since about 1893.

The artists, who were different in age, painted together, often using the same female models - and traveling, such as to Essoyes in 1897 and Amsterdam in 1898.

Abel Faivre had studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Lyon and had arrived in Paris to the Academie Julian only around 1890 to perfect himself with Lefebvre and Constant.
The artist drew a spontaneous perception, which enabled him as a draftsman and caricaturist. Famous in France are his works for Le Rire and Le Figaro.
