A Greek Captive
Henriette Browne

This work is typical of the artist's genre paintings of children. The sitter was an Italian girl, Maria Pasqua Abruzzesi (1856 - 1939), who was taken by her father to Paris in 1862. Famous for her beauty, she enjoyed great success as a child model, and also posed for the artists Hébert and Bonnat.
