    The subject of this painting is Yvonne, one of Bouguereau's favorite models. She and her sisters, Jeanne and Marguerite, who also served as models, lived near La Rochelle, where Bouguereau found artistic inspiration on successive summers with his family from 1893 until the end of his career. Yvonne is immortalized at various stages of her childhood in a succession of Bouguereau's paintings.
