In The Loge is an 1878 Impressionist painting by American artist Mary Cassatt. It depicts a woman at the Garnier Opera using opera glasses to examine the audience, while she herself is being spied upon by another gentleman in the audience. This piece demonstrates various types of gaze within a painting, that of the audience (male), the subject and a putti. This example is exemplified in Édouard Manet's piece Olympia.
