This is an excellent woman portrait., Elisabetha Schildknecht, born zu Reifesberg on April 5 1803. The portrait was painted on Mai 30 1854 by Xaver J'ger. All this information are on the backside of the canvas written.
Considering her name, Elisabetha must come from a land gentry family. Her clothes - typical churchgoing outfit of the time- and the coral necklace are speaking for this supposition. It is a very good painting, a pious woman with much character.
The painter, (Franz) Xaver Jaeger, Austrian, ( 1816-1862) is listed by Artprice and Artnet. He is well known for the woman portraits he painted, mostly pious woman of land gentry family. Very good condition, a minuscule repaint on the top.
Measurements: 15.2 x 22.4 inches. Offered without frame.
