A fabulous life size oil portrait of a beautiful young girl in original wood and gesso frame. The young lady is dressed in a lovely off-the-shoulder dark green dress and holds a piece of sheet music in her right hand ( sheet music is "Beautiful Dreamer" ). She is posed standing in front of a red drape and next to a tall secretary/bureau. The portrait is American and dates to around 1860-1880. It is not signed, but definitely done by a very talented artist who probably did portraits for a living. The painting measures 36" high by 28" wide. Frame measures 47" high by 40" wide. The condition of the painting is very good for a piece of this size and age. There is some craquelure particularly on her face and arms (magnified photos) which does not detract from the viewing distance and is consistent with its age. It does have a professional repair on the upper left hand side which has been done to a very high standard and is not noticeable.
The painting is impressive and wonderful!!! You must see it in person.
Due to the delicate nature of the painting and frame, it will be shipped by a moving company.
