Summary

The boy peeling the pear is Léon Koëlla Leenhoff, the son of Manet's wife Suzanne Leenhoff. But this is not just a straight-forward portrait. The artist was probably inspired by everyday scenes in older paintings – kitchen interiors, still-lifes or portrayals of various household chores. These were popular subjects in France in the 19th century. Anders Zorn acquired the painting on a visit to Paris, and donated it to the Nationalmuseum in 1896. Thus, the museum obtained its very first work by an artist in the Impressionist circle. Svenska: Päronskalande hette Léon Koëlla Leenhoff och var son till Manets hustru Suzanne Leenhoff. Men det rör sig här inte om något vanligt porträtt. Konstnären inspirerades troligen av äldre epokers vardagsscener – köksinteriörer, stilleben eller skildringar av olika hushållssysslor. Sådana motiv var också populära i Frankrike under 1800-talet. Under ett besök i Paris blev Anders Zorn ägare till målningen. År 1896 skänkte han den vidare till Nationalmuseum. Därmed hade museet fått sitt allra första verk av en konstnär i impressionisternas krets.
