An 1886 oil on canvas, Girl Arranging Her Hair, by Mary Cassatt (1844-1926), the American impressionist painter. White often interested the impressionists as to capture the play of light upon an absence of colour was a real challenge. Here the night dress is contrasted strongly against the orange-browns behind of the washstand and wallpaper. (National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.)
