The Pensive Shepherdess

(British School, 19th Century)

Oil on canvas, Unsigned

Painting size: 30” x 20”
Frame size: 36.25” x 26.5”

This sweet genre painting of a shepherdess with her flock reflects the theme of the child-of-nature, a sensibility embraced by Victorians during the 19th century. The figure’s youth and comely face convey innocence, while her steadfast pose next to the goldenrod suggests that she is at ease in her environment.
