From Museum of Fine Arts, Boston:
Victorine Meurent was Manet’s favorite model in the 1860s, posing for Street Singer, also in the MFA’s collection, as well as for such other renowned works as Olympia and Luncheon on the Grass (both now in the Musée d’Orsay in Paris). This portrait is thought to be Manet’s first painting of Victorine.
