La Petite Cigale or portrait of the artist’s daughter, Albert Joseph Pénot

Oil on canvas, roughly 63 x 39 inches (161 x 98 cm). Link is to a past auction on Tajan auctions. There is a somewhat smaller image on Wikimedia Commons which lists the location of the original as Museum No Hero, Delden (The Netherlands).

Google translates “La Petite Cigale” as “the little cicada”; perhaps that was the artist’s nickname for his daughter, I don’t know.

If you’re inclined to search for more of Pénot’s work, you will find some beautiful paintings, but be aware that many of them would be considered NSFW.
