In this sensitive rendering, Marie Bracquemond’s son Pierre practices his painting—a still life. Pierre was 17 at the time of this painting. Three years later, Marie gave up painting professionally, a bitter sacrifice motivated by her husband Felix Bracquemond. Felix was also a painter, who Pierre described as growing increasingly bitter over his wife’s success with the Salon. In 1919, three years after his mother’s death, Pierre held a retrospective of his mother’s work at the Galerie Bernheim-Jeune. He held no such retrospective for his father.
