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 card. 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, all still fully intact. A little craquele visible. Nothing missing. Photos show it well.
Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time!
