What is going through her mind? Girl with Straw Hat (1835) was painted by the Austro-Hungarian artist Friedrich von Amerling (1803-1887). With her hand below her chin and her dreamy upward gaze, it is a pretty universal way of telling us that the young lady in this portrait is in a pensive and melancholic mood. And the compositional choice to show her with her face turned away from us, makes the painting a bit more intriguing. She is wearing a straw hat with a long green ribbon around it, which dominates the composition. The painting was sold in 2008 for $1.9 million. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #FineArts #ArtoftheDay #AustrianArt #AustrianArtist #AustrianPainter #HungarianArt #HungarianArtist #HungarianPainter #VonAmerling #Portrait #Hat #StrawHat
