The Straw Bonnet

Andrew Plimer


A finely painted portrait of a blushing young lady in a classical décolleté gown, her long blonde curls topped with a straw bonnet trimmed with brown ribbon. This styling of a lady looking demure in a straw bonnet was a favoured pose that Plimer returned to on several occasions.

Set in a gold frame with a fausse-montre hanger and a glazed aperture on the reverse that reveals plaited blonde hair.
