Heffel Auction House Biography and Notes

In May 1883, with the acceptance of his canvas La première notation (Mother's Help) to the Paris Salon of the Société des artistes français, Paul Peel had achieved a key ambition, the very reason for pursuing advance studies in France: to be affirmed as meeting the international artistic standards of his day, as set by such French aesthetic arbiters. New credentials in hand, Peel returned to his hometown of London, Ontario, with a shipment of his recent works intended for sale to Canadian patrons, the proceeds of which would underwrite ongoing studies abroad. In December 1883, he returned to Paris accompanied by his younger sister Mildred, another Peel with artistic ambitions. The siblings spent the summer of 1884 sketching in and around Pont-Aven in Britanny, where Peel's American artist friends congregated, before pushing on into Normandy. During the course of this summer, Peel sketched his sister, a ready model, seated on a grassy coastal embankment looking out to sea. This finished canvas, worked up from the direct oil study, retains much of the fresh sunny palette and painterly qualities of the plein air study.
