Articulately done by a talented artist.Oil on canvas. This lovely portrait of a woman deep in thought. Her fine facial details are quite articulate. She wears a lace shawl, but the expression in the eyes is so real. The painting dates early 19th century. There is a signature on the back and some other writing but not 100 percent sure of the name. The painting measures 13 1/2" by 17 1/2" with a 2" wood gilt frame.Painting is in very good condition with craquleur and age grime but displays well.It appears there are a couple patches on the back where restoration has been done.
