These two states of Séguin’s print feature sprightly lines and flat surface decoration, which link this etching to Séguin’s brief association with the group of artists known as the Nabis. In the first state on the left, the sinuous, unbroken lines create an elegant, finished composition. In the final state on the right, the figure is identical, but the surfaces are more complex. Séguin’s addition of patterned fabric in the final state also recalls the Nabis. Séguin carefully wiped the plate clean of ink in the woman’s face and hands and each flower of her skirt in order to create areas of bright contrast.
