Since it has (finally) begun to warm up, we have decided to create another skirt art! If you’re new to Skirt Fixation, you may not have seen one of our Skirt Art creations. We take a piece of art with a skirt in it and imitate it to the best of our ability!
This time, we decided to recreate A Little Schoolgirl by Johann Georg Meyer von Bremen. He was born on Oct 8, 1813 in Bremen, Germany. When he was 21, he went to the Düsseldorf Academy of Art. In 1841 he opened his own studio, but as he got more famous, moved to Berlin. This oil painting was painted in 1875 Johann Georg Meyer von Bremen died on Dec 4, 1886.
One of the things I (Aria) like about A Little Schoolgirl is the pose, and the way the artist captured the look in her eyes. Unfortunately, we couldn’t capture that look as it was sunny, and in many of the pictures Annie was squinting. It didn’t really help that I was squinting too!
Here’s a neat little thing Annie and I figured out: it looks like the little schoolgirl in the photo used the same reading book Annie is using to learn how to read! We use the McGuffy readers, and our Dad learned to read using them too. The little illustrations and cute old time stories with morals are fun when you are learning to read.
Painting: A Little Schoolgirl
Artist: Johann Georg Meyer von Bremen
Skirt: Same one as in Young Girl With Goat and Flowers

We also have 2 Pinterest boards (Skirt Art (Paintings) and Skirt Art (Illustrations)) where we compile works of art with skirts in them! We would love any suggestions on what piece of skirt art to recreate next!
