Oil on canvas in giltwood frame.
A charming portrait of a young girl in a country landscape; she hold a basket of flowers and seems to offer one to the viewer.
The flower in her hand is a single red rosebud which symbolises her youth, a loving nature and simplicity...like the girl, it has yet to reach maturity.
The flowers in the basket are honeysuckle for sweetness of disposition, briar rose for purity and spiritual love, and white jasmine for an amiable character.
