The present sheet is unusually refined in execution, and may be included among a handful of more finished drawings by the artist, such as a portrait of his daughter Colette, executed in coloured chalks, in the Louvre, as well as a pair of interior scenes and a watercolour still-life of flowers and paintbrushes, also among the nearly 2,800 of the artist’s drawings in the collection of the Louvre.
