The Elder Sister
The Elder Sister is an oil-on-canvas painting by French academic artist William-Adolphe Bouguereau, produced in 1869. The painting shows a girl (the "elder sister") sitting on a rock and holding a sleeping baby on her lap, with a quiet rural landscape behind them. For this scene, Bouguereau's daughter Henriette and son Paul served as models. Bouguereau used great care and attention in drawing the children's features and the positioning of their bodies, giving them an idyllic look. The girl's eyes look directly at the viewer and both children are shown with immaculate clothing. The painting is now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.Painting credit: William-Adolphe Bouguereau
