Title: Le Petit Papillon

Medium: Acrylic on Hardboard

Size: 50 × 40 × 2 cm

Original Painting Signed On the Back by the Artist 


Le Petit Papillon is a portrait of a young girl with butterflies. The dark backdrop contrasts the brightness of the child, who stares out impassively at the viewer; it is the butterfly which imbues the almost melancholic girl with the hope and innocence that any childhood should have.

Working predominantly from photographs and magazines, Anika Manuel's subject matter focuses on people, depicting them sometimes as a form of social commentary, other times presenting them exactly as they are, for the viewer to imbue with their own ideas. Recycling imagery is important to her general concerns, as there already exist so many undervalued images which haven’t yet been fully explored.
