"Though undated, this work was probably begun in the summer of 1882, when Berthe Morisot and her family rented a house in Bougival, a picturesque village along the Seine River. She spent the summer there with her husband Eugène Manet (the artist [Édouard's] brother), and their nearly four-year-old daughter, Julie. The child wearing a straw hat in the background of this painting is probably Julie. The identity of the young woman is unknown."
