CHILD WEARING A RED DRESS
Full-length rendering of a seated baby girl wearing a red dress with black dots and lace trim and holding a rattle and a small ball; grey-blue eyes and the expression of her mouth suggest that these toys might have represented only a momentary distraction for a bright and mischievous child; seated on a patterned carpet; taupe background and swag curtain with tassels framing the upper section. Stretcher and gilded frame of the period.
Oil on canvas
27 1/2 by 23 in.
