Hardrick was born in Indianapolis, where he spent his entire career.

Little Brown Girl exemplifies Hardrick’s figure studies in floral settings. Its brightly colored background, painted with a palette knife, is typical of the artist’s impressionist style.

This painting received a Harmon Foundation bronze medal in 1927. From 1926 to 1933 the Harmon Foundation presented awards to African American artists for distinguished achievement in the fine arts.
