Contextual notes: 
Both of these oil paintings are clearly based upon known photographs by Julien Vallou de Villeneuve (1795-1866).
  • In L'Atelier (The Artist's Studio) 1855 (Musée d'Orsay) the woman partially concealed by the towel has been copied from a nude study by Villeneuve now in the Biblioteque Nationale (Paris).
  • In Les Baigneuses (The Bathers) 1853 (The Musée Fabre, Montpellier) also used a Villeneuve print now in the Biblioteque Nationale (Paris).
The book by Aaron Scharf Art and Photography (1968) discusses these similarities and landscape paintings by Gustave Courbet that used photographs by Gustave Le Gray and Adolph Braun.
