It seems to be influenced by the work of Manet (who exhibited a series of ladies against decorative backgrounds in the 1880s) and Tissot (who depicted the everyday life of Parisian women). Helleu worked for the ceramicist, Theodore Deck who re-created the Persian techniques of faience glazing which leads to a slightly blurred effect in the glaze.
