About this artwork

The daughter of an affluent and cultured family, Eva Gonzalès was Édouard Manet’s first and only official pupil. Girl with Cherries, which features a freely painted figure lit dramatically against a dark background, shows a clear debt to Manet’s contemporary Spanish-style works. The model wears the frilled linen cap and loose, striped gown of an 18th-century servant girl—an occupation further suggested by her rolled-up sleeve.
