The Little Florist
The Little Florist by British Painter Thomas-Francis Dicksee (1819 – 1895), a portrait artist who specialized in the historical genre; and was often inspired by the works of Shakespeare.
This is an adorable and cute baby girl portrait painting of a young girl that is about 4 years of age, sitting on the ground, in what could be a forest setting or a garden during the mid afternoon.
She is wearing a white baby flower girl dress, white socks, and brown flower girl shoes, and she has auburn hair that is beautifully illuminated by the sunlight that is streaming on the left side of her face.
In place of a little flower girl basket, she just has a collection of flowers that she has gathered resting on her lap, and to the right side of her right leg are more flowers; with additional plants around the perimeter and in the background.
Note: Since the background was severely damaged (looked like water damage), and the background was almost completely black; I decided to use the trees of another classical art piece called Anglers by a Pond by Jacob van Ruisdael (1628 – 1682) for the background; and blend it in with the plants that were still visible on the Little Florist.
