Girls wearing shawls

on March 19, 2018

I had such fun searching for images of women wearing paisley shawls (you can see the post here), that I decided to continue looking for paintings, but this time with girls wearing shawls.


Girl in a Red Shawl by Alexi Harlamott (1840-1925)


Aprilliebe by Arthur Hughes (1832-1915)


Girl in a yellow shawl by Eugene de Blaas (1931)


Girl with a green shawl by Joseph deCamp (1900)


Lise in a white shawl by Renoir (1841-1919)

Do any of these images activate stories for you?  You can find out how paisley shawls and the development of paisley pattern have influenced the writing of Paisley Shirt by clicking here.

  1. Thank you for those Gail – the second one, the girl in blue dress and shawl – immediately captured my imagination. I’ll have a go!

    Wow! What evocative paintings. Each of them speaks to me in their own way, and I see many possibilities in future writings. Thank you for posting them.
