The White Dress was the first painting Bourguignon painted after he moved to Columbus in 1950. Bourguignon began to paint in an Expressionist style, similar to Henri Matisse. As the art critic for the Brussels newspaper, Le Phare, Paul reported on a major Matisse exhibition in Paris. He was inspired by Matisse’s artistic freedom.
