Alphonsine de Challie worked in the studio of Charles Joshua Chaplin and was a friend of Berthe Morisot. In 1875, Berthe Morisot painted the’ Woman with her toilet ‘which is today preserved at the Art Institute of Chicago. Is she undressing or getting ready? The same mystery surrounds this picture of Alphonsine Challie who was probably influenced by his elder. More on this painting
Having grown up in an intellectual family that encouraged her talent for drawing, Alphonsine de Challié studied painting under Charles Chaplin, one of the first artists to open his studio to female students among whom were Mary Cassatt, Louise Abbéma and Madeleine Lemaire. De Challié befriended fellow artist Berthe Morisot and exhibited regularly at the Salon between 1878 and 1882. More on Alphonsine de Challié
