Nerli, Dirolamo - Girl in a Sunbonnet

Fine Art Prints of Distinction


A Museum Quality Print of Girl in a Sunbonnet by Girolamo Nerli. The artist painted this oil on canvas in the year 1897 in New Zealand with the size of the original artwork is 59 by 34 centimeters. This informal portrait of a girl in dappled sunshine is characteristic of the open-air genre subjects preferred by Italian immigrant artist Girolamo Nerli. The model is painted close-up, cropped, and smiling, as if ‘snapped’ by a camera, with the indefinite background of vegetation seeming almost out of focus. These techniques help give the portrait its spontaneous look, an effect that was considered radically modern in New Zealand at the beginning of the 20th century.
