Ford Madox Brown : “The Irish Girl” (1860)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

A young orange-seller in a red paisley shawl holds a sprig of vibrant cornflowers. She does not smile and meet the spectator’s gaze, as in contemporary popular depictions of pretty coster girls, but neither is she presented as an object of pity. Her demeanor is mature, even businesslike, as she stares pensively out-of-frame. She may be unduly burdened by adult responsibilities, but she is not without her resources.

The Irish Girl is a pendant to The English Boy; a regal portrait of the artist’s five-year-old son holding his toys (a top and whip) like an orb and scepter.
