Description: 

This work features four young girls seated against flowered foliage. They break into pairs and appear to examine flowers picked from the shrubbery. This work was painted in an impressionist style of painting. Where the details are substituted for swatches of color that convey the light and emotion of this warm and whimsical day. Pastel colors dissipate into white, seemingly framing the scene in bright sunlight. The colors extend onto the outermost layer of matting with a solid light pink layer of matting separating them. The original painting was by impressionist painter Willem Haenraets. As early as the age of 16, Haenraets studied at the Academy of Arts in Maastricht, the Netherlands, and furthered his education at the National Institute of Fine Arts in Antwerp.
