|Some old copy after Velasquez|
This little copy I found in a German Auction site not long ago It is clearly a copy of Velasquez picture
But it is a sweet copy where the artist tried to make his own picture.
I think it often happens that the eyes are placed a little wrong or they are given too much attention , painted too dark or clear or a little bit too big , so they stand out like two holes in the portrait. It is very hard to paint a children portrait since their faces are so rounded and have so few shapes, and the eyes are rather big.
Since it is almost only eyes nose and mouth it is very important that they get the right angel according to the hidden cranium.Else they kind of swim upon the cranium and doesn't sit in right.
The portrait is nice, but it has one eyes which is placed wrong .
This is a funny picture where he obviously didn't have time to work as much on his daughter as on the big wooden Grail, perhaps she got tired of modeling for him or the jar was more interesting?
A rather unknown picture, I have many Gauguin books and have never seen this picture before.
Here is a portrait where the eyes were not over painted. they fit in both in grey tone and in colour.
As an artist who paint children I will say that every children painting contain a choice when it comes to the size of the child in the surrounding. In this picture You get a precise feeling of the age of this child is because the door nob is so high above her. And still she is rather thin compared to her height.
I love this white /grey type of painting that was so perfected by Hammershøj
I think that Knopff must have seen Hammershøj's paintings which were famous in his time.
A great Easter picture 3 red haired girls in colours of Easter daffodils.
Many portraits of children in this period make the child look too old in the face
If you only look at the face and nit the size of the body she could easily be thought of as being more than 15 years old. when she actually is no more than 4-5 the most.
Love this picture look how Järnefelt knows to draw so well.
I like that it is kept in so few colours and you do not feel any colour is missing.
Artist not know ,the picture seen in a German auction site.
