This sunny painting of a sewing woman was painted in front of patio doors with a balcony by Jules Cavailles in 1943 during the Second World War. Despite the sunny atmosphere, the painting still has a somewhat sad appearance due to the withered flowers. This work was executed in Albi, southern France. Albi is a charming city located in the Occitanie region of southern France. It is the capital of the Tarn department and is known for its rich history, beautiful architecture, and cultural heritage. Albi is also famous for being the birthplace of the renowned Post-Impressionist painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. The Toulouse-Lautrec Museum is housed in the Palais de la Berbie, a medieval fortress located near the cathedral. The museum showcases a significant collection of Toulouse-Lautrec's works, including paintings, drawings, and lithographs, providing insight into his life and artistic career. The Tarn River runs through Albi, enhancing the city's scenic beauty. The riverbanks are ideal for leisurely walks, picnics, and enjoying the view of the city's landmarks from a different perspective. Albi's combination of historical significance, artistic heritage, and natural beauty makes it a popular destination for both tourists and art enthusiasts. Its well-preserved medieval architecture and cultural attractions contribute to its unique charm.
