Little Bridgid

Hilda Roberts

b. 1901 - d. 1982
Oil on canvas

In 'Little Bridgid', through the window we glimpse rows of white-washed cottages, suggesting a seaside location. The freshly painted face of the little girl captures the innocence and vulnerability of childhood, and her clothes suggest a simplicity far from the stylized formality of a society portrait.
