L'Absinthe (The Absinthe Drinker or Glass of Absinthe) is a 1876 painting. It depicts two figures, a woman and man, who sit in the center and right of this painting, respectively. The man, wearing a hat, looks right, off the canvas, while the woman, dressed formally and also wearing a hat, stares vacantly downward. A glass filled with the eponymous greenish liquid sits before her. The painting is a representation of the increasing social isolation in Paris during its stage of rapid growth. The work is now in the collection of the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.
