  • The pastel medium provides a softness and spontaneity suitable for capturing the delicate features and lively personalities of the girls.
  • Children and motherhood provided the themes for most of Cassatt’s work.
  • Cassatt was the only American to exhibit with the French Impressionists.

Purchased from the Maurice LeClanche collection by Mr. Knoedler; Lucy Taggart sent the piece to the John Herron Art Institute, Indianapolis, Indiana, now the Indianapolis Museum of Art, in 1925.
