The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit
– When it was exhibited in Paris in 1882 and 1883, critics were struck by its unusual composition. It has been described as Arguably the most psychologically compelling painting of Sargent’s career”.
– The painting was heavily influenced by Diego Velázquez’s Las Meninas which is interpreted as “Maids-in-Waiting”. The relationship between the paintings was considered so significant that the Museum of Fine Arts loaned it to the Museo del Prado in 2010 so that the paintings could be exhibited together.

More about The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit
The four children in the portrait are daughters of Edward Boit, a lawyer, and Mary Louisa Cushing, daughter of a wealthy merchant. Julia, aged four, is playing alone with her doll in the middle of the room while Mary Louisa, aged eight, stands to the left. Jane at age twelve and Florence at age fourteen are both standing on a dark part of the room, perhaps conspiring. The painting is on display at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston between the two tall vases depicted in the painting. They were donated by the Boit sisters to the museum in memory of their father.
