Museum's website, 23 December 2014:
In 1917 Renoir and his assistant Richard Guino executed a small figure of a crouching washerwoman in Renoir's studio at Cagnes-sur-Mer in the south of France. Under Renoir's close supervision, Guino sculpted a large-scale plaster version of the subject that was subsequently cast in bronze. The figure personifies Water, an element that Renoir had long associated with women in countless paintings.
