Bonnard, one of the central members of the Nabis group, was greatly influenced by the Japonism boom of the late 19th century. Japanese woodblock prints were an object of wonder for Bonnard, who discarded the traditional European expression of three dimensional space and tended toward decoratively idealized and flattened compositions. The decorative qualities characterizing his Nabis period are clearly visible here, such as the vertical composition, the S-shaped curve of the girl's body, the decorative forms and the two dimensional spatial composition.
