Schutz vor dem Sturm

Schutz vor dem Sturm c1902 (Protection From The Storm) by Dutch-French Painter Frederik Hendrik Kaemmerer (1839 – 1902); a Romantic, Academic and Impressionist artist.

This wonderful fall colored ,portrait depicts an auburn haired young lady standing at the edge of some steps in a park by a stone railing and balusters.

There are leaves between the balusters and on the edge of the steps as well as plants behind and to her right, that are enclosed in a small metal railing.

She is dressed in a satin blue dress with dark brown fur lining the the collar, going down the fron and going around the perimeter at the bottom; a white slip, black stockings and black low heel shoes.

She is also wearing a matching bonnet with a tan interior that she has tied in place with matching blue ribbon; and on the hat are large black feathers that have two orange ovals with black centers, creating an appearance of cat eyes.

Completing her outfit is a black shawl or scarf that she has flung around her back and is adjusting with both her hands over her shoulders.

Behind the young lady we can see other women in white dresses and men in brown full length coats carrying umbrellas, as they leave the park to get out of the on coming rainy storm; and behind these people are trees without leaves and more trees farther off with leaves and a rainbow arching across the sky.
