This vivaciously painted domestic subject belongs with a group of similar interior scenes with portraits of friends executed by Sargent in the 1880s. It depicts the family of the well-known French artists Albert Besnard (1849-1934) and his wife Charlotte Dubray (1855-1931), whom Sargent had befriended by 1883.
