Arts Everyday Living: Through the Eyes of Father-Daughter Artists–the Spirit of Girlhood

Ford Madox Brown, The Irish Girl, 1860, oil on canvas laid on board, Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, CT


British artists Ford Madox Brown (1821-1893) and Catherine Madox Brown (1850-1927) were father and daughter, both sharing the gift of creativity. You might want to compare their individual interpretations of girlhood according to elements of style (such as color, light and overall composition) as well as personality and spirit of each sitter.
