From Palace of the Legion of Honor, San Francisco:
At the Milliner’s was painted only two or three years before Manet’s death and portrays one of the themes that Manet preferred later in his career: feminine elegance. The depiction of women in shops or boudoirs trying on hats was also favored by several of Manet’s contemporaries, including Edgar Degas and Camille Pissarro.
