About this work

This portrait of an unknown young woman by Henry Marvell Carr RA (1894-70) was commissioned for Rowntree & Co. Ltd Aero chocolate advertising during the 1950s as part of the Aero Girls 'DIFFERENT' campaign devised by JWT. The painting directly references Francisco Goya's (1746-1828) portrait of Doña Antonia Zárate c.1805 which is held in the National Gallery of Ireland collection. Carr's portrait is not thought to have been published.
