About this artwork
This independently sculpted figure of a girl offering a coin as payment for the pastry she holds was originally paired with another biscuit figure, which depicts a boy selling pastries from a basket slung across his shoulder. Like many such sculptures from this period, these were modeled after designs by the French artist François Boucher (1703–1770).
