A finely studied and beautiful executed portrait of Mignonne-which means "cute"-with her pretty baby blue bow. Mignonne appears to be possibly Yorkshire Terrier or some other terrier breed. Though much has still be learned about the artist, Louis Eugène Bourgeois, his output seems to be consistently of very high quality.
