Born in Germany in 1856, Buchner enjoyed painting from an early age and it is probable that he studied in Paris, although he spent most of his life in Munich. Buchner, along with esteemed contemporaries such as Reggianini, Ricci and Soulacroix, focused on portraying images of the sheer luxury of the previous century. Taste and elegance were keynotes in the pictorial reinterpretation of the age and conversation pieces such as this example were an ideal vehicle for showing elegant figures in sumptuous surroundings. In this painting, Buchner dwells lovingly on the richness of texture in the lady's dress, the upholstery and wall coverings. The furniture is depicted in all its magnificence and the coquettish pose of the young lady is both attractive and intriguing.
