Georgette Daveline (1902-1986) was born in Nevers, just south of Paris. She studied her art in Paris under the eye of Dubois who instilled into her the traditions of the great 19th century impressionists with whom he had worked. She responded well to his tuition, her natural talent bringing a freshness to her delicate touch and sensitive feminine vision. This painting, which was completed in the mid 1920's, and was exhibited in the salon, is a wonderful example of her talent, echoing as it does, the touch of the Impressionist masters and the palette of the Fauves. She exhibited in the Salons in Paris from 1923 onwards.
