Henri Manguin is considered an influential member of the Fauvist movement among his friends and contemporaries, Henri Matisse, Albert Marquet and André Derain. His unique technique, combining a vehement and sensitive character to address his love for Jeanne, nature, and landscapes.

In 1904, after spending the last two summers along La Manche, in northern France, the artist joins Matisse and Marquet on the Mediterranean coast at Saint Tropez. During these months, he experiences new techniques such as the treatment of light and use of typical of the south bright colours. Like many of his contemporaries, Manguin’s work has largely been influenced by his summers in Mediterranean coast. Indeed, by using a broad spectrum including bright purple colour, he infuses his work with harmony and good feeling, further heralding the role of colour as the milestone of painting.

He pursues his studies back in Paris, working with Matisse, Marquet and Jean Puy and paints this oil on canvas during the winter of 1904-05, representing his favourite model; his wife Jeanne, in an intimate daily scene.In 1905, he exhibits at the Salon d’automne in Paris where the French art critic, Louis Vauxcelle which first coined the term “Fauves”
