Adopting the ‘naïve’ traits of the primitive genre with the simplistic and somewhat disproportionate rendering of form, the artist nonetheless demonstrates considerable competence and skill in his use of light and detail in this charming portrait.
Set in a stylised landscape with a waterfall and distant hills, the density of the tree behind her and the warmth and colour of the sunset beyond act to accentuate the liveliness of the subject.
