Girl dressing (painting (visual work); Harold Gilman (English painter, 1876-1919); ca. 1912; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; 1957-0013-1)
Note: Girl dressing depicts a narrow view of a modest bedroom where a young woman is putting on her jacket. The figure’s natural pose caught in arrested motion, and the homely details of the room with its iron framed bed, fireplace, wooden chair and floral wallpaper, give the scene an air of casual intimacy. The painting is one of a group of related works in which the same interior and model are depicted. (Victoria Robson, 2009)
