Pinkie is the traditional title for a portrait made in by Thomas Lawrence in the permanent collection of the Huntington Library at San Marino, California where it hangs opposite The Blue Boy by Thomas Gainsborough. The title now given it by the museum is Sarah Barrett Moulton: Pinkie. These two works are the centerpieces of the institute's art collection, which specialises in eighteenth-century English portraiture. The painting is an elegant depiction of Sarah Barrett Moulton , who was about eleven years old when painted.
The Surprisingly Recent Time Period When Boys Wore Pink, Girls Wore Blue, and Both Wore Dresses
Thanks for the information, I recently found The Blue boy and the Red Boy in etching and the are signed. They were framed in Salsburg by Adolf Gunther q can anyone tell me more. Good information. Like you my "Blue Boy" seemed to disappear from my home. I was wondering if you knew how many prints of "Pink Lady" there might be and if the prints are worth anything. I appreciate your comment. I wasn't able to find the number of prints that may be around, but it must be a lot because there seems to be many, many sellers listed on Google.

They are the subjects of endless reproductions, porcelain figurines, commemorative plates and all manner of kitsch. Two youths betrothed to one another by the place they shared on a museum wall. The girl in pink and the boy in blue; how perfect is that?
