‘Young Woman with a Pink Parasol’ by Aimé Stevens
Framed oil on canvas by the Belgian artist Aimé Stevens (1879-1951) titled ‘Jeune Femme à l’Ombrelle Rose’.
Seated rather demurely on a sandy beach, with the tide receding behind her, the young lady who is the subject of the picture is dressed entirely in a very fetching shade of rose-pink and shading herself from the sun with a matching parasol.
Her stockinged feet protrude just below the hem of her dress and she’s wearing a ruffle brimmed mob-cap on her head, her dark hair framing her face.
Looking directly at the viewer, there’s a slight look of surprise on her face as if perhaps her quiet thoughts have been suddenly interrupted.
This is a striking original image from a highly regarded artist whose work has been reproduced commercially and is widely available in print form.
The visible area of canvas measures 59 X 39 cm and the overall framed size is approximately 74 X 54 cm.
