Virginie Demont-Breton enjoyed international success during her lifetime exhibiting at the Salon des Artistes Français and other European exhibitions, and having her work represented by the powerful dealers Knoedler and Goupil, who provided her with access to the American art market. Demont-Breton began work on the present composition in February 1892, and in June of that year Knoedler purchased the painting and likely brought it back to New York.

Fillette à la guirlande de fleurs des champs depicts a young shepherdess taking respite from her work by making flower garlands. The setting is the village of Wissant, a rural seaside community which drew many artists at the turn of the century. Though a young peasant girl's day would have been made up of work in the field, Demont-Breton has instead chosen to focus on a sweet, restful moment in verdant fields, with the Mont de Couple visible in the background, far from the rapid modernization and industrial advances of the urban centers of France in the late nineteenth century.
