The works he brought back from Egypt were met with an enthusiastic welcome. In 1914, Odilon Redon, then 73 years of age (and an artist Van Dongen admired immensely), accepted an invitation to visit his studio. It transpired that Redon had long had an appreciative eye for Van Dongen's painting and had drawn other people's attention to his work. Impressed by what he saw, he asked the artist if he could buy one of his paintings. The present artwork, Femme debout dans un jardin (Taale) is the very painting Redon chose to purchase from Van Dongen's studio and one of the very few paintings coming from other artists to be owned by Redon.
