From 1886 Ford modelled a series of bronze statuettes in which he endeavoured to embody playfulness, the most successful of which was the present work; it was modelled using the lost-wax process, the malleability of which allowed the artist to achieve a strikingly realistic portrait of the subject, particularly noticeable in the textured modelling of her hair. This model is also in the Tate Gallery (no. NO1758).
