Biography Polykleitos Regos
A pivotal work in the Polykleitos Rengos' career and an important statement of postwar figuration, Child with yellow hat can be read as a metaphor for Greece emerging in the early 1950s from the ravages of WWII and civil war.
As recalled by the artist's son Constantinos, who posed for the picture, "it was during the carnival days just before Lent in 1950. Rengos was in a happy mood and this painting testifies to it. Note that the conical Pierrot hat has a tassel of colourful streamers waving in the air. What Rengos is trying to say is: the devastating 1940s are over, now is the dawn of a new era."
