This is one of our favorite genuine antique artworks for any home....early 19th century portraits work so well with antique samplers, primitives and early Staffordshire pottery.
This wonderful full length early Victorian watercolor portrait of a lady was produced in England during the 19th century, circa 1845. The ORIGINAL full length painting is on card and depicts a female sitter in profile view. The young lady is seen wearing a pretty flowing blue/green dress and is holding a lace handkerchief in her hand. We call her Jodie, as she very much reminds us of the actress Jodie Foster. We love the way in which the artist has painted the detail to her hair and cap, notice the gold brooch to the center of her neck tie. This is a fabulous naive portrait, perfect for anyone who loves early folk art.
The painting is housed behind glass in a period correct antique wood frame. The frame is made of soft pine and has a fabulous painted faux grain finish. This was a popular technique in this period when one could not acquire or afford real Rosewood.
