An 1872 oil on canvas painting, Interior, by Berthe Morisot (1841-95), the French impressionist painter. The central figure is the lady of the house while the nanny stands with a child at the window. Inspired perhaps by contemporary fashion plates, this scene is given an impressionistic touch by Morisot showing the light coming through the thin curtains and picking out spots of the gilding in the picture frame behind the seated lady.
