Portrait of Mademoiselle Legrand  1875

by Auguste Renoir

During the 1870s, when his Impressionist paintings sold poorly, Renoir supported himself with portrait commissions. This portrait of six-year-old Adelphine Legrand, the daughter of a friend and art dealer, shows the artist’s skill in capturing the hesitant personality of a young child, full of natural vivacity but determined to behave.
