Girl with Violin. Henry Harewood Robinson (fl. Cornwall 1884-1896). Oil on canvas. Lanhydrock, Cornwall, South West, National Trust. This painting shows the influence of the decorative and purely sensual ideals of late-19th-century Aestheticism and the Pre-Raphaelite preoccupation with the medieval. The girl is part of the general scheme of turquoise and gold which runs throughout the picture and the musical theme, popular in Aesthetic work, adds to the dreamlike mood.
