Catalogue Note

This drawing is a rarity in William Bouguereau’s oeuvre, as it appears to be independent and unrelated to any of the artist's known paintings. Just as with his oils, Bouguereau's academic technique highlights the faces and hands of the two young siblings and is enhanced by the differentiation between their smooth skin and the thick cotton of their chemises.
