An oil on porcelain painting that depicts an 18th Century lady posing on a terrace. Our lady has brown hair with a large feathered hat upon her head. Her gown is blue that is trimmed with white lice along the low neckline. Her shoulders are draped with a pink cape or blanket.
In the background we see a large expanse of lawn and trees with curtains and a marble pillar behind her. The drapery colors seem to match her hat in purple and orange hues.
This has been professionally framed with wood enriched with gold. The signature is half hidden by the frame and was hard to photo. The entire piece measures 14 1/2 x 12 1/2. The exposed painting is 8 3/4 x 6 3/4 so behind the frame it most likely measures 9 inches by 7 inches. We did not dis-assemble to take accurate measurements. This is in perfect condition and ready to display.
