About 1875, Degas made a portrait of Berthe-Marie Bachoux, Jean-Baptiste Jeantaud's wife, who had been the painter's comrade in arms during the Franco-Prussian war in 1870. In 1929, she bequeathed another painting by Degas to the Musée d'Orsay: Jeantaud, Linet, Lainé (1871), in which her husband appears with two friends.The familiar, comfortable realism of this painting is characteristic of the portraits of the 1870s, but the composition is highly original.
