18th/19th Century Continental School Master Portrait of a Lady18th/19th Century Continental School Master Portrait of a Lady18th/19th Century Continental School Master Portrait of a Lady

Late 18th / early 19th century Continental or possibly Scandinavian School Master Portrait of a Lady, possibly a nun. Oil on wood panel. Unsigned. Scandinavian gallery/auction label on reverse. 26 x 33.5cm (10.25 x 13.25in) sight (visible painting) size. Mounted in a later gilt composition swept frame. Frame dimensions (39 x 47cm 15.5 x 18.5in)

A masterly painting of outstanding quality with superb skin tones and character.

CONDITION: Generally good for age. Clean and ready to hang. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals some areas of overpainting, mainly limited to the background at upper right and a patch in the hood of her red habit. There is also a very small area at the lower left edge of the painting. Light craquelure throughout. Some wear to the paint layer through past cleaning. There is a raised 6cm (2.5in) line in the varnish layer, probably a run, vertically down her face at the corner of her left eye.
