This Contemporary Original Canvas Portrait Oil Painting was created in 2005. The oil painting is called Page.
In medieval times, a page was an attendant to a knight; an apprentice squire. A young boy (in this oil painting it is a young girl) served as a page for seven years, from the age of seven (after cutting hair) until he was fourteen. At age fourteen, he could graduate to become a squire, and by age 21, perhaps a knight himself. Similar pages served in castles, and great houses fetching things and running messages for aristocrats and royalty. These boys were often the scions of other great families who were learning the ropes of the manorial system by watching and learning. Their residence in the house served as a goodwill gesture between the two families involved and helped them gain political contacts for their adult lives.
