Mary Cassatt - Woman Bathing [1890-91] by Gandalf’s Gallery
Via Flickr:
The American painter and printmaker Mary Cassatt spent her professional life in Paris, where she was a member of the Impressionist group. La Toilette belongs to a group of ten color prints that Cassatt showed at her first independent exhibition (at the Galerie Durand-Ruel, Paris) in 1891. The abstract, linear quality of the nude’s back drew the attention of Cassatt’s colleague and sometime collaborator, Hilaire Germain Edgar Degas (1834-1917), who exclaimed, "I do not admit that a woman can draw like that." [Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York - Drypoint and aquatint, printed in colour from three plates, 36.4 x 26.8 cm]

Matlida Who Told Lies Was Burned to Death by Hilaire Belloc!

I found it! galesofnovember

I am 99% percent sure this was it because “Matilda” kept popping up in my brain, but I assumed I was confusing the Roald Dahl book so I didn’t actually use that name to find the poem. It came up with the search terms “girl matches dies fire poem.”
