The subject of Renoir’s The Pinned Hat was depicted by him in six different compositions, three etchings and three lithographs. Renoir treated this scene of two young girls side by side, with one of them pinning on the other's hat, in a series of variations at this time. His models are known to have been Julie Manet, the daughter of Berthe Morisot and niece of Eduard Manet, and her cousin, Paulette Gobillard. The scene originated from a study Pierre Renoir made while on holiday on the coast of Northern France with Berthe Morisot and her family. Julie Manet was a favorite model for Renoir and on this occasion he drew her on the beach with her cousin who was adjusting the pin on her large sun hat.
