Circa late 19th century
Dressed in her best Victorianesque dress, this little girl must have been bored to death by the time tis painting was finished. Today, we are so touched with technology that we take for granted photographs and such. A computer in the late 1800's, they would have loved it however, I think air conditioning would have been much more exciting though I'm not sure. Anyway, this childs solemn demeanor is caught in this fine painting retaining its original period frame. The chair, wear on her shoe, and the frills of her dress add so many feminine touches that you believe it has to be a girl....
