This painting at the Louvre is attributed to the Fontainbleau school and is thought to be of Gabrielle d'Estrees and one of her sisters in a wooden bathtub, c. 1595. Gabrielle d'Estrees was the mistress of Henry IV and is depicted holding a ring given to her by the king. Her sister pinches her nipple to indicate that she is pregnant with the king's child. In the background a female figure is sewing clothes for the baby.
