  • I agree 100% about the medium. This is a very strong and powerful drawing. I also love the colour palette, Jim.

  • Jim, we seem to be having some kind of cosmic connection with titles and paintings relating to other paintings and titles. I noted the name, Lyme Regis in the title of this painting. One of my favorite paintings by James Whistler is called, "The Little Rose of Lyme Regis."

    Too bad we can't post pictures in the Comments. There are not very many good reproductions of this painting on the internet. It is my own personal "Mona Lisa" as to its effect on me.

    James Abbott McNeill Whistler left America permanently at the age of twenty-one and spent four years in Paris before settling in London, where he lived for the rest of his life. He created this beautiful image, one of a series of tonal portraits challenging the sentimentality of Victorian portrayals of children, near the end of his career. Painted on a visit to the British coastal resort town of Lyme Regis in 1895, the portrait of eight-year-old Rosie Randall, daughter of the town’s mayor, was not a commission but one of a small group of studies Whistler undertook as a tribute to the children he called “the little Lyme Regis maidens.”[1]Whistler portrays Rosie gazing directly at the viewer, nervously clasping her hands. She wears a red pinafore over a black dress and emerges from a dark background. The artist applied thin layers of paint to create this soft, diffuse likeness, which eloquently captures the innocence and vulnerability of childhood. He designed a wide, simple frame to emphasize the delicacy of the image.
