From Art Institute of Chicago :
Pierre-Auguste Renoir painted this canvas on his first visit to the estate of his patron Paul-Antoine Berard at Wargemont on the Normandy coast. There he made a series of portraits of Madame Berard and her children, as well as some decorations for the château: still lifes of game for the dining room and of flowers for the library and drawing room. Young Woman Sewing part genre subject, part floral still life was one of a number of additional paintings Renoir made at Wargemont that were not commissioned by Berard. The flowers asters and chrysanthemums suggest a date in the late summer.
