Italian Child

Susan Isabel Dacre 1844 - 1933

Summary

Three quarter left side portrait of young Italian girl, eyes downcast, arms raised and hands clasped together in front of her chest. She is wearing a costume with red and yellow sleeves, bright red trousers, and a white shirt with a green tie around her neck. Her hair is long and very dark black with a long fringe. The background is painted in an impressionist style with very gestural brushwork in light and mid grey, white and sky blue. This painting style is continued in the portrait itself with certain details such as the cuffs painted in a similarly gestural style.
