Ingres's well-known passion for playing the violin gave to the French language a colloquialism, "violon d'Ingres", meaning a hobby or avocation. The American painter and photographer Man Ray used this expression as the title of a famous photograph portraying Alice Prin (aka Kiki de Montparnasse) in the pose of the Valpinçon Bather.
