 The little pastel room |  Print  

The main bedroom

Decorated with fine panelling, this bedroom possesses an alcove surrounded by wardrobes. The activity illustrated here is dressing and make-up; the automaton represents a lady of quality with her "belle poule" hairstyle powdering her face in front of a miniature dressing-table.

Several travelling dressing-cases with their many accessories, a table with wig-stands, a bath, a water-heater, etc., are all related to the business of washing and dressing.
