John Everett Millais - The Minuet

oil on canvas

I nearly said I had a framed print of this on my bedroom wall when I was a child - then realised the girl in 'my' picture was wearing a black dress and looked more at peace with her world.

What strikes me here (apart from her unhappy expression) is that she appears to be wearing working shoes.

There are some odd aspects in this painting but I can't find out its background. I agree about the shoes and I wish I knew who she was.
