Pierre-Auguste Renoir: Girl Braiding her Hair

Girl Braiding her Hair: Pierre-Auguste Renoir

In French Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s 1876 work Girl Braiding her Hair, we see Renoir’s model, Suzanne Valadon, portrayed dreamily attending to her hair.

The entwining of the hair can be seen as analogous to the entwining of the girl’s presence of mind with her absorption in a daydream.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s Girl Braiding her Hair is in the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
