One of a pair of small portraits we bought from the same French estate some time ago, we're offering them separately. The painting is English in origin, and bears some readable text n that stamp remaining on the backside (see photos). This one is a beautiful young woman with dark hair and blue eyes, fine clothing and a superb 3/4 torso composition that is both brilliant and calming. The old frame dates beautifully, also, to c.1830-60, seems to us to have been the old original.
Very good to excellent condition. The painting is done in gouache on thin natural wafer. The measurements are all noted on our photos, but outer frame measures 9" tall, 8" wide and 1.25" in depth. Lots of gesso appliqué, Just one small swirl missing, a small restoration there. A little craquele visible. Nothing missing. Photos show it well.
