What a wonderful portrait of a pretty lady posed in her fine lace shawl and big white hat! Nicely executed in watercolor signed on the right, the entire work to include the frame measures 3 1/2" x 3 1/8", the painting in oval measures 2" x 1 1/2". The painting is in good antique condition. The original frame has some cracks which has happened over the past 100+ years.
The painting has been opened at the back (not by me!) and re-taped and much of the original newspaper used to cover the back is missing, but from what we can decipher, it appears to be French. It is missing the suspension loop for hanging, but we can include a small clear plastic easel for display if requested. Just a divine antique painting of a lovely lady with a sweet smile and fabulous antique wardrobe. Circa 1880-1900, French in origin.
