The painting was exhibited at the Paris Salon, the annual government-sponsored art show, in 1884, and critics found it erotic and scandalous, so much so that Sargent soon thereafter abandoned his Paris studio and moved permanently to London. Sargent later repainted the fallen strap of the lady's gown back up onto her shoulder, but Thomas Baker (guided by an old photo of the painting as it was shown in the Salon) has painted it here as it was originally seen, slipped down suggestively over her arm. This painting is about half the size of the original.

Well it is a beautiful painting which caused a scandal at the time because of the jewelled straps on her revealing yet concealing black dress. One strap had slipped off her shoulder in a provocative fashion and he later repainting this area to show the strap on her shoulder.
