soldportrait of a young lady c1910 by ambrose mcevoy


Status: This item has been sold
Sold by: Roy Precious - Antiques & Fine Art

Oil on canvas in replica cassetta frame.
A beautiful portrait of an attractive young woman; lost in thought, her gaze passes the viewer.
The image has a great sense of calm and peace.
McEvoy's treatment of the face is sensitive and insightful, painted with great care, whereas in the drapery he indulges in a painterly delight in manipulating the medium...the lace is depicted in a free and almost impressionistic manner.
Ambrose McEvoy was one of the most successful British portraitists of the early twentieth century
and one of the most adventurous British artists of his time. He frequently experimented with composition and technique, and was one of the first artists to focus on mixing artificial and natural light in his portraits. As a result, the sitter here is illuminated with a gentle, golden glow.
This portrait is a fine example of McEvoy’s noted ability to combine classical painting with modernism.
AMBROSE MCEVOY (1878-1927) was born in Crudwell, Wiltshire. more description
