Object Description: In John Sloan’s Carol with Blue Ribbon, a young girl, placed against a dark background and illuminated by yellow light, looks at the viewer with precocious eyes and offers a cunning smile. The ribbon in her hair, painted in varying tones of blue, adds to the girl’s aura of lively intelligence. Sloan’s sectioning of the subject’s ribbon and dress and expressive brushwork in this portrait recall the experimentation of Post-Impressionists like Paul Cézanne and Vincent van Gogh.
