Ford Madox Brown, The Irish Girl, 1860
Oil on canvas laid on board
Yale Center for British Art, Paul Mellon Fund
One of the few works by this artist that I really like (I generally find his pre-raphaelite sentimentality quite sickening), it might have something to do with that lovely blue cornflower the subject holds.
If one more person comments on the pre-raphaelite ‘sentimentality’ I am seriously going to loose it. Glad you like this one, I am sure Ford Madox Brown cares deeply and is now turning in his grave happy because you liked this one work by him.
And no, I GOT NO CHILL TODAY.
