Head of a Girl
On loan from Tate: Bequeathed by Sir Hugh Walpole 1941, © 2000 Tate

This painting of an unidentified young girl has sometimes been entitled 'Head of a Little Servant Girl'. In later years Renoir often used his servants as models, and this girl, seen in profile against a featureless backdrop, would have been among the youngest in service.
