From: Manet / Velazquez
Chase's studio provided
for a performance organized with Sargent (who also painted Carmencita).
The dancer performed twice more in Chase's studio and then agreed to
for him, though in the end her pose and costume in the painting were
on a publicity photograph. Chase's rendering projects the energy and
that made Carmencita a star.
