Roqueplan, Camille Joseph Etienne. 1800-1855

Girl with Flowers

France, 1843

This Roqueplan's painting is typical of the art of the period of July Monarchy in France (1830-1848). However, the painterly qualities of this work do not allow to rank it among the Salon pictures. It is a genre scene: a girl returns home after a walk with a bouquet of wild flowers. Her wide-brimmed straw hat attractively frames her pretty face, with its open, welcoming gaze. Her half-naked breast, the raised skirt and carelessly tied kerchief create the impression of naturalness and slight piquancy. The girl's figure is harmoniously set into an oval. Roqueplan's composition, which is without any pretension to depth or significance of meaning, yet attracts our attention with the ingenuous image of the young girl.
