Pierre Bracquemond as a Child

Pierre Bracquemond as a Child, 1878 — Marie Bracquemond

Pierre Bracquemond as a Child is a Realist, Oil on Canvas Painting created by Marie Bracquemond in 1878. The image is in the Public Domain, and tagged Children, Family and Portraits.

Marie Bracquemond's son Pierre would have been about 8 years old at the time of this lovingly detailed portrait. Already recognizable by his widows-peak and close-cropped hair, Pierre looks relatively unchanged 9 years later when we see him at his painting lessions. Pierre would later write "La Vie de Felix et Marie Bracquemond" — telling the story of his parent's tempestuous and ultimately frustrated lives.
