About Portrait of a girl with red shawl

Portrait of a Girl with Red Shawl is an oil painting by French painter Adolphe Piot, known for his portraits of young women. The painting was created in the Academicism style and depicts a young girl with curly brown hair wearing a white dress with a red shawl and white flowers.

Adolphe Piot was born in Digoin, France, and studied under Leon Cogniet in Paris. He exhibited his paintings from 1850 to 1909, specializing in portraits of young women set against idyllic backgrounds.

Portrait of a Girl with Red Shawl captures the essence of Piot’s style by featuring delicate lines and rich colors that highlight the subject’s unique features. The girl in the portrait wears a red shawl against her white dress that serves as the focal point of the painting. Her curly brown hair frames her face. The background is dark, giving great contrast to the white and rich red.
