Young Girl with Paper Dolls

French School, Late 19th Century, unsigned

Oil on Canvas

Sight Size (oval): 19” x 14 ¼”
Frame: 25 ½” x 20 ¾”

This charming study of a young girl intent on cutting out paper dolls is reminiscent of works by Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt and Pierre-Auguste Renoir (his earlier works).
She is beautifully captured with her rosebud lips, her hair tied up in a bow, a lacy pinafore over her navy dress and stockinged legs dangling. Set against a textured backdrop, her figure seems perfectly set apart, in her own world.
