The Odalisque en Grisaille raises questions about its attribution to Ingres and moreover about the reasons why it was painted. Through analysis of Ingres’ reflections on the importance of drawing over colour, this paper proposes a new hypothesis about the nature of the painting: that it could have been a studio exercise executed by the painter with his pupils in order to help them understand the value of monochrome.
