Portrait of a Young Girl is a small oil-on-oak panel painting by the Early Netherlandish painter Petrus Christus. It was completed towards the end of his life, between 1465 and 1470. It marks a major stylistic advance in contemporary portraiture; the girl is set in an airy, three-dimensional, realistic setting, and stares out at the viewer with a complicated expression that is reserved, yet intelligent and alert. It's such an enigmatic painting! 1. Tap to start- 2. Watch the video and 3. try to come up with answers for the questions raised. 4. Tap to add to your journal.
