Paisaje con niña y hortensias (Landscape with Young Girl and Hydrangeas)

Paisaje con niña y hortensias

Though Alfredo Ramos Martínez played a leading role in art instruction in the second and third decades of the 20th century, introducing some of the formal principles of the Impressionists to the academy, his own work was characterized by a more conservative visual language. His works, in which young girls with pretty faces and vaporous dresses stroll through flowery landscapes suggest a kind of allegory constructed around the natural surroundings and the young girls' flower of youth.
