One of two sizable portraits of girlhood we are offering by notable Illinois artist Christine Ilewski-Huelsmann, not only a fixture in the arts establishment widely represented in galleries and museums but also founder of Faces Not Forgotten. This is a portrait that manages to combine an abstract quality of the dreaminess of girlhood with the distinction of a very real individual -- an actual girl, not a classicized archetype. She shows a mastery of color and composition here as well.
