When Sargent finished his Salon picture --  it was painted, varnished and ready for exhibition with the right dress strap dangling off her shoulder. Mike Pieczonka has altered the image of the painting (as we have it today) to give us an idea of how it might have originally looked based on the photograph of the painting at the time.
