Painted in the garden at the Hessel family's Villa Anna, Vuillard described that his young sitters kept him busy, "all morning; hope; recover impressions of years gone by, gradual release, good mood, lunch sweltering heat, cigar; sketch" (ibid. p. 1402). Manon's light summer dress and loose chignon are indicative of the oppressive summer heat, further expressed by the work's saturated pinks, blues and greens which sensationalize the fleeting languidness yet distinct joy of summer.
