Georges van den Bos (1853-1911)

Artist Name Georges van den Bos (1853-1911)
Title Portrait of a Young Girl in a Peach Dress
Description This captivating portrait oil painting is by noted artist Georges Van Den Bos. Painted circa 1905, it is a half length portrait of a young girl wearing a peach dress with lace bodice and matching ribbons in her hair. There is incredible realism in her delicate facial features, moving to more  impressionistic brushwork in her dress and hints at European modernism. She stands out beautifully against a dark background as she gazes out from the canvas, directly at the artist/viewer. A really lovely portrait and an excellent example of Bos' work.
