In keeping with my Japanese theme for this month, I have something a little different today. The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has a lovely collection of Asian art as well as Impressionist art. One painting that spans both is La Japonaise by Claude Monet. This is a painting of his wife, Camille, in a blonde wig and Japanese kimono. It's returning to the MFA after conservation & a tour abroad.

This painting seemed like a fitting subject for a paper doll! Now, I'm not sure what Camille Monet wore under HER kimono, so I kept the doll base the same as all of the others. I'm not totally sure about the accuracy of the kimono either. The painting shows figure in profile, so I had to guess at the front of this. Check out the MFA's page on the painting here.
Maybe I'll do a whole series of art paper dolls. How fun would that be?! Anyway, enjoy!
