FRIEDRICH VON AMERLING
LOST IN HER DREAMS
Amerling’s genre paintings are seldom of large-scale scenes, and they usually refrain from any sort of moralisation. In this example, too, the mood is set by nothing more than facial expression and gesture, supported by a few props. The veil of black lace frames the girl’s fine features and puts her in just the right light.
