Striking figural study of a Southeast Asian woman with an elaborate headdress, engaged in weaving or sewing. The portrait, done in the interior of a house and showing another house through an open window, is a close-up of the female working with thread and needle as she sits on the floor. The study is executed on artist board. The painting is framed in wood with a metal spacer between it and the canvas. On the back is gallery information. It appears that the piece was shown in a gallery in Bangkok, Thailand, and displays a small label on the back with this information. There are four of these painting, each depicting Southeastern Asian women in village costumes of the hill tribes of Northern Thailand and bordering countries. These will be listed separately. The image size of this piece is 16" x 23" and the framed size is 20" x 28". Condition is very good to excellent. The piece is signed by the artist.
The last two images show all four of the painting together. One of these paintings is listed under vintage painting and prints, and the others are listed under fine art. This listing is for one only. The frames are all hand-made and when all four are mounted on the wall, as shown in the final two photos, one can see that there are subtle variations in size.
