Primitive Portrait of a Girl with Posy

The girl with ringlets, wearing a blue ribboned and tiered dress with matching shoes and straw hat and holding a posy of flowers, is seated in a pastoral landscape. Now in an ebonised frame with gilt slip.
English, indistinctly signed and dated 1850.
Framed Height 40” (102cm) Width 34” (87cm)
Stock No.8235

Adopting the ‘naïve’ traits of the primitive genre with the simplistic and somewhat disproportionate rendering of form, the artist nonetheless demonstrates considerable competence and skill in his use of light and detail in this charming portrait.
Set in a stylised landscape with a waterfall and distant hills, the density of the tree behind her and the warmth and colour of the sunset beyond act to accentuate the liveliness of the subject.
