Penrhyn Stanlaws
Young woman with flowers

About

Designed as a cameo, this beautiful auburn-haired young woman stands sideways in the foreground of the work with her head turned toward the viewer. She is dressed in a filmy lavender-colored gown which reveals her shapely arms and slender body, the results of the artist’s academic training and skill at figure-painting. Around her head is an oversized violet blue ribbon. In her hat, which she holds in her hands by the long blue ribbons that would otherwise be tied under her chin, she has collected a large bouquet of yellow and white daisies. The artist has used complimentary hues of lavender, blue, and green for the background of trees and fields in a highly sensitive manner. The finished effect produces a soft-focused, dreamlike quality to the work, almost as if the girl was an ethereal being who has stepped briefly into our world. The American portrait painter and illustrator Penrhyn Stanlaws was born Penrhyn Stanley Adamson in Dundee, Scotland on March 19, 1877. He came to the United States in 1891. Stanlaws studied at the Academie Julian in Paris under Jean Joseph Benjamin Constant (1845-1902) and Jean-Paul Laurens (1838-1921). He also studied in London. Stanlaws exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1904. In 1908 he moved to New York City. He was instrumental, along with artists like Howard Chandler Christy (1873-1952), in the construction of the famous Hotel des Artistes on West 67th Street (near where Lincoln Center was constructed in the 1960s). This was a prestigious residential building for
