While the date of this painting would suggest Peel’s fiancée, Isaure Verdier, as the most likely subject, the figure also bears a resemblance to Peel’s younger sister Clara Louise as depicted in Reading the Future (collection of the Vancouver Art Gallery).

Still other experts have speculated that the sitter could be Peel’s sister Mildred, who accompanied the artist back to Paris in December 1883.
