"'"The Toilet" represents a graceful young Pompeian woman in a light, flowing, diaphanous robe, through which the color and undulations of her form are faintly discernable - sitting on a marble seat before a sculptured marble table, holding a small mirror in one hand, while with the other she combs her auburn hair. The apartment is open, showing a view of the peristyleum or court-yard, with its marble columns, fountains, and statuary, and a bit of the deep blue Italian sky above. The picture makes one think somewhat of alma tadema, whose work it certainly equals.' - The Courier-Journal." [P. 19; see serial 03890203 for commentary on artist.]
