A Girl feeding a Bird in a Cage

This painting was probably painted when the artist was living in Paris. It is similar in style to his 'Girl seated outside a House' of the same date, in which the model may be the same girl.

This may be the picture that was exhibited at the French Gallery in London in 1868 as 'The Pet Bird' by J.Maris.
