The French painter Collin, who is also known as a teacher to painters such as Kuroda Seiki, Okada Saburosuke, and Wada Eisaku, is evaluated as a painter who captured the charm of children with subtle, refined expressiveness. This work is truly a testament to that ability. In the expression of the ladylike young girl, who has cast a doll into the background and is holding a new plaything, one can perceive the complicated nature specific to the period of being a young girl wavering between adulthood and childhood. It is a masterpiece from Collin's middle period, and was exhibited at an 1885 salon.
