Italian Girl with Necklace

Susan Isabel Dacre 1844 - 1933

Summary

Head and chest right side portrait of young Italian girl, wearing a shawl wrapped around her, a coral-coloured necklace, and an ivy leaf wreath on her head. Her right arm is raised against her chest, holding the shawl which falls from her left shoulder, and her head is turned to the right, looking behind her. The brushwork is exaggerated and the paint appears to be quite textured in its application. Her costume is exotic and theatrical and would have been worn especially for the occasion.
