Sir George Clausen, "Brown Eyes" (1891) (Tate Britain, 13 July 2014) This is a portrait of a local girl from the village of Cookham in Berkshire, where the artist was living in 1891. Clausen started painting open-air ‘rural naturalist’ subjects from 1880, in imitation of the French painter Jules Bastien-Lepage. The delicate play of light across the model’s features, together with the flicked Impressionist brushwork in the background, suggest both the freshness and ephemerality of youth.
