Born in Strasbourg, the artist moved to Paris in 1869. This composition of around 1888 is one of several pictures with maternal themes, utilising Carrière's wife as a model. Although highly thought of and friendly with Degas and Rodin, his reputation waned rapidly after his death. Gwendoline Davies was especially fond of his atmospheric, monochromatic style. She purchased this painting in Paris in 1917.
