Alfred Provis (British, 1843-1886) - Interior, Girl Reading, 1875 (Oil on panel. Ferens Art Gallery) - Provis specialised in small, detailed interiors of cottages and farmhouses, with women and children performing household chores or, in this work, reading. His pictures are usually small and predominantly brown in colour. Provis’s palette of luminous browns abandons the ‘principal’ for a less, narrow solution of light and a freer analysis, drawing the viewer’s eye all around the whole of his canvas.
