Oil on canvas, 17" by 9" and thin original wood frame, signed lower left "M Stuart", depicting a young woman in greenish gray paint. This is more a work of figural art, really, than mere portrait. The sitter is unknown, as is the artist; there is a listing for a Mimi Stuart (1959-) but I am not convinced this is by that artist. Signature looks as if it could be by a British hand, judging from the style of writing. It is a professional signature, though, and this is not a work by an amateur. The age is circa 1960's or 1970's. There is some missing paint showing as white patches at center bottom neckline, and a smaller loss at left center. Paint is fairly thickly applied so it just appears to have flaked off in that area. Should be easy to repair.
