Gorgeous antique 19th century French pastel portrait. Depicting a portrait of a child with blond curls and blue eyes, her angelic face appears bright and illuminated against the dark green shaded background. Wrapped around her shoulders is a fur lined shawl; the artist incorporated hints of lights and darks to convey cascades of folds giving it the appearance of luxurious gray silk. Tenderly nestled in her arm is an adorable tabby kitten with one paw outstretched. Such a lovely image and quite charming. The portrait was beautifully painted by a truly skilled hand and exquisitely detailed with an emphasis on realism. Signed BZG. Housed protectively under glass within a carved and gilded wood frame, most likely original. In very good condition. Some wear to the frame with losses to the braided outer trim as shown. Frame measures 23" x 19 1/2" oval. Portrait measures 17 1/2" x 14 1/4" (sight).
