"I have most enjoyed painting poor, delicate children. I didn't know whether that will interest anyone." - Helene Schjerfbeck (1862-1946). The Convalescent (1888) is her most famous example of this. It shows the girl in recovery, and you can clearly see that she is getting her energy back. And look at that lovely bed hair... #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #Schjerfbeck #HeleneSchjerfbeck #FemaleArtist #Finnish #Finland #Ateneum #Museum #Sick #SickChild #Recovery #Child #Girl
