Anne de Polastron de La Hilliere c1650 French School
A stylish mid 17th century portrait of an elegant young woman, probably Anne de Polastron. The cross stretcher verso is inscribed with the sitters and other family member information.
The canvas has been lined and mounted on a replacement cross stretcher probably in the 19th century. There is craquelure to the paint surface and the varnish is a little yellow.
The frame is a later carved Montparnasse style frame which has been adapted to fit a slightly larger canvas. It has minor restoration, is slightly distressed and suits the portrait nicely.
