Federico Maldarelli
La Toilette

1863

About

Federico Maldarelli often painted portraits, and “La Toilette,” one of a pair, is an exquisite example of the neo-classical style in which he painted, often using beautiful Neopolitan women from aristocratic families. Maldarelli, whether in his religious altarpieces and murals or his portraits of aristocrats or illustrious personalities, believed devoutly in the power of beauty to elevate and refine the human spirit. His accessories always are basic and simple, allowing the beauty of the face to be all important. In “La Toilette” the gently sweeping curves in the woman’s clothing are repeated in her hair. The broad area of yellow in the background is balanced by the brighter, clear colors in the foreground. The modeling of this young woman’s skin is a smooth gradation of values, again emphasizing the neo-classical approach to skin tones. As with “Le Coucher,” which was painted a year earlier, everything in this painting enhances rather than distracts or distances the viewer from the main focus of the work - a beautiful young woman who is dressing and grooming herself.
