The Goose Girl Canvas Print
Dimensions (including border) : 55 cm x 70 cm
Dimensions of image: 41 cm x 52 cm
This work belongs to a series of pictures of woodland settings painted around Royle's native Sheffield. His wife Lily posed as the girl moving her geese through a bluebell wood in spring. Her lack of expression and the frieze-like composition contribute to the sense of a frozen moment captured on canvas. The flowers' purple tones complement the girl's orange dress, on which sunlight reflects. The paint is quite thickly applied, revealing the influence of French Impressionism.
National Gallery of Ireland Canvas Prints almost feel like having the real painting on your wall. Printed on Hahnemühle Leonardo Canvas using ultra chrome HDR pigment inks, our canvas prints come rolled in a protective tube with the paintings information.
In order to preserve the image and prevent unnecessary fading, the canvas should not be exposed to direct sunlight and its harmful UV rays.
