This study relates to the figure of the mother in The Fisherman's Family, a painting first shown in the 1875 Salon exhibition, and which the artist also painted in reduced scale in 1887. While Puvis represented his female figure completely nude in the study, in the painting he left bare just a breast, shoulder, and arm.
