The photographs in which Breitner recorded his wife exude the tranquil atmosphere of their domestic interior. Marie Jordan was first a model, then the mistress, and later the wife of the famous painter, who was also an amateur photographer. Breitner captured Marie after bathing, with the dog and a cup of tea in her bed, or with the cat in her lap.
