This emotive portrait marks an important rediscovery for William Bouguereau. Sold to a collector in Utrecht in 1867, the year that it was painted, it has been passed down through the same family for generations over more than 150 years. Until today, this painting has been known only from a postcard published by Goupil with the title, Mignon. However, the child’s face and distinctive expression are well-known from the artist’s Loin du Pays in Puerto Rico’s Museo de Arte de Ponce (fig. 1).

Emilienne Cesil-Biegler, the girl who posed for this painting, was among Bouguereau's favorite models during this period and appeared in most of his works painted between 1865 and 1867, among them La prière (1865, Private Collection), L’oiseau chéri (1867, Yamadera Goto Museum, Japan) and La reveil (1865, Private Collection, see lot 614 for reduction). Born in 1859, she was the daughter of Bouguereau's housemaid.
