Depicts the five-year-old daughter of Renoir’s devoted patron Paul Berard, a diplomat and banker whom Renoir met in 1878. The artist often summered at the Berards' country home in Wargemont, near Dieppe, on the Normandy coast, where he painted decorative pictures for the house and a veritable family album of portraits, ranging from formal commissions to more intimate works that reflect a genuine fondness for the four Berard children.
