Carmelina
1903; Oil on canvas, 31 1/2" x 25 1/4"; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

The body of the Model merges with the draperies, and the roundness of her body works with the familiar rectanglar foils of picture frames, a mirror, and drawings pinned to the wall. Tying everything together is the contrast of lights and darks, particularly as light strikes the body of the model, making the figure more angular than it must have been in acuality.
