FREE SHIPPING ANYWHERE IN THE CONTINENTAL US! This is a GORGEOUS painting of to young sisters (possibly twins) and their little dog. Early 20th century Victorian. Oil on canvas. These girls are absolutely delightful in their Sunday best white dresses, blue anklets and black shoes. They have strawberry blond hair, blue eyes and pink rosy cheeks, and the way that girl on the right holds her sister with one hand and her dog in the other is very touching. This portrait is unsigned, but was obviously painted by a professional portrait artist in his or her day. The painting itself measures a large 38" x 28" and is displayed in a fancy period gilt wood and gesso frame measuring 43 1/2" x 33 1/2" x 3" deep. So sweet...
I have added 3 photos (please see last 3) which I took with a flash to give the photos more clarity.
Condition: Relined and retouched, uneven varnish with brush strokes visible, and fine craquelure. This painting would benefit from a professional cleaning, which would remove the old varnish and bring out the color even more. There is a detached piece of canvas center left (please see photos) measuring approx. 3" long. The frame is in overall good condition with a small chip to the lower left corner and a large chip to bottom, as shown.
