A pivotal work in the artist's 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."

The picture shows a child riding a tricycle on the Thessaloniki waterfront under a starry sky with sailboats floating peacefully in the background. There is a black-and-white photograph kept in the family's records that depicts Rengos's son wearing the outfit in the painting, namely the beige coat, the black shoes and white socks and, of course, the dazzling yellow Pierrot hat with the characteristic polka dots. The moored caiques behind him, which transported citrus fruit from the Sporades islands, are named 'St. Nikolaos', 'St. Constantinos' and 'St. Georgios', alluding to the artist's two sons and his wife Georgia. Therefore, this painting, besides being a captivating rendition of childhood as a reflection of the artist's subjective eye, it's also an ingenious family portrait foreshadowing his 1957 work titled

Evangelistria, Tinos

where he lovingly portrayed his family in the midst of an olive grove. When asked about his portraits, Rengos used to say: "To do a portrait, a real portrait, there must be love."

The subject of the child dressed as a Pierrot or Harlequin had been a popular theme since the early 18th century, when Watteau introduced the Commedia dell' Arte figure Gilles (or Pierrot) in his paintings, influencing artists throughout Europe from Fragonard to Renoir and Picasso, whose pictures of his son Paulo are among his finest works. Rengos's

Child with yellow hat

also alludes to Pissarro's

Enfant avec cheval mécanique

, 1875 and Monet's representation of his son Jean on his horse tricycle, 1872 (Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York). Moreover, Rengos's enchanting canvas is an homage to his teacher D. Galanis, whose portrait of his son Jean on his hobby horse from 1914 is one of the most enduring images of Modern Greek art.
