Lady in the Black Dress

"Madame Georges Charpentier and her children"

I don't really care for costumed models,
but there were certainly a lot of great paintings of them
in this current exhibition at the Art Institute 

And the above Renoir from the Met
was a memorable rendering
of a black dress

Coincidentally, several P&C painters
put a model into a black dress
in the Sunday workshop-after-the-workshop

And they were doing
a pretty good job!
