This painting has the look of folk art or primitive painting and yet has some very fine detail. The painting is on a single board measuring 17 1/2" x 24" x 1/2" thick. The lady has Victorian dress in a rich deep blue. The details of the shawl draped over the arm are very appealing. The skin tones are luminescent. She has a choker with what looks like a cameo pendant. There is red in the background. The painting is not signed or dated. I would date this 19th century. There are some scratches. Other than that, it is in very good condition.
