Louis Emile Pinel de Grandchamp
Jeune fille lisant au pied de grand arbre

About

“Young woman reading at the foot of a large tree,” the title of this work, is somewhat misleading. She is not reading but rather thinking, musing, or perhaps reminiscing, likely inspired by something she has read just moments earlier. The soulful look on her lovely face and in her eyes suggests she may be thinking of love. She comes from a wealthy family; the pleats in her skirt are well pressed, a task foreign to her smooth-skinned hands. The rest of her costume, in taste and tailoring, also shows a background of comfortable circumstances. The deep purple velvet of her blouse is set off by a soft pink overdress, and her stockings are of a color somewhat between the two. A white petticoat trimmed in lace peeks out from under her pleated skirt and the ensemble is completed by an expensive pair of soft, black leather shoes. A bright red parasol leans against the grey-brown tree trunk, to be used to protect her face from the sun on her walk back to the house. The portrait is made all the more striking as she is posed upon green spring grass with green leaves as the background. At the top of the painting the sun shines full upon lighter colored leaves, and there is dappled sun on the ground in the middle distance. This is a charming picture, but there the question always will remain - what is she thinking about?
