Arts Everyday Living: Children in Art—Waiting for a Smile

Jean-Jacques Henner, 1873, oil on canvas, National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

French painter Jean-Jacques Henner (1829-1905) was a contemporary of the French Impressionists but his style and subjects generally differed.  However, his portraits of girls and women can rival the artistry of a Renoir or a Cassatt.
