American School ; middle -half of 19th century Folk Art Painting on canvas of young Virginia girl in large ornate hand- carved gold gilded court frame of the period. This Painting was obviously done by a well-trained artist. Deep rich tones with incredible haunting blue eyes. This painting was obtained from a spectacular slave plantation in Gordonsville, VA. called Inverness. Only a stone chimney remains on the grounds. This portrait of this unknown girl likely remains the only artery to a past & family forever seemingly lost in time.
Portrait 19' x 23 inches with frame 28’ x 33 inches. Lasting impression: timeless.
