Wallace Collection The Strawberry Girl framed print - image 1 of 15

This vintage print is in very good condition, the frame has some minor surface scratches, the back is very worn. It looks like it was frames in 1967 by Toney's Fine Arts in Iowa.

The Strawberry Girl is an example of Reynolds’s so-called ‘fancy pictures’, which typically showed children in sentimental costume or guises. In this case, the subject was adapted from the real-life figure of a strawberry seller. However, Reynolds’s depiction of a child is not consistent with contemporary representations of the subject and this aspect appears to have been the artist’s own invention. Similarly, Reynolds has removed the figure from its traditional urban setting and portrayed her in an exotic costume (the turban is particularly curious). The innovativeness of Reynolds’s design may account for its popularity; certainly the artist himself is known to have considered the Strawberry Girl to be his most original and successful work.
