Footnotes

  • Provenance
    A gift from the artist to his friend and artist Franz Roubad, and by descent to the present owner.

    This work was a gift from George Jakobides to Franz Roubad (1856-1928), an acknowledged Russian landscapist whom the artist had met during his studies at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts in the late 1870s.

    Painted c. 1985-1900, Young girl in the fields embodies a great example of Jakobides' later interest in the outdoors, testifying to his quest for artistic rebirth and keen exploration of new possibilities resulting from plein-air painting. His outdoor scenes from the 1890s, painted mainly for his own pleasure, clearly reveal his familiarity with the Barbizon school and especially the artists Charles-Francois Daubigny and Theodore Rousseau. Here, his use of warmer tones of reds and oranges allows him to successfully capture the effects of sunlight, while the loose brushwork and uniform intensity of colour help him better handle the human figure as an integral part of the natural environment.

    An astute observer of human nature and a sensitive and perceptive painter who delved into childhood's psyche, Jakobides captured his young model in the verge of tears, showcasing his great ability to look beyond idealized stereotypes and record characteristic children expressions that have not yet become but are on the verge of becoming apparent.
