Girl in sunbonnet (oil painting (visual work); Girolamo Pieri Nerli (Italian painter, ca. 1860-1926); 1897; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; 1939-0010-1)
Note: This informal portrait of a girl in dappled sunshine is characteristic of the open-air genre subjects preferred by Italian immigrant artist Girolamo Nerli. The model is painted close-up, cropped, and smiling, as if 'snapped' by a camera, with the indefinite background of vegetation seeming almost out of focus. These techniques help give the portrait its spontaneous look, an effect that was considered radically modern in New Zealand at the beginning of the 20th century.
