Mademoiselle Marthe Everart is one of those artists whose work has to speak for her because there appears to be no biographical information about her. She was a member of the Society of French Artists and known for nude portraits and domestic, maternal scenes. Here, for the Salon de 1913, she exhibited La Femme aux Rubans. A lady with her brunette hair pulled back in a chignon sits on an ottoman, pulling a blue ribbon through a ruffled gown, a negligee most likely. A nearby box on the table is overflowing with even more ribbons in a variety of colors.
