Mary Cassatt received her early training in America but settled in Paris, where she befriended Edgar Degas and exhibited with the Impressionists.

Young children were among Cassatt's favorite subjects, though she avoided sentimental portrayals in favor of emphasizing her models' freshness, intelligence, and energy.

This pastel is one in a series of portraits of children who lived in the French village where Cassatt spent her summers.
