Absolutely stunning oil on canvas portrait of a beautiful young woman holding her little dog. From the mid 19th century, this portrait is skillfully painted. Raven black hair, porcelain skin, dark eyes, and sumptuous lips, the artist captured the true essence of her beauty. As evidence of the quality of this piece, notice the way her hands are painted. The crimson red shawl with gold metallic trim and subtle drape, looks as if you could touch it. And, oh, her little black dog is adorable! The background alludes to a luscious landscape filled with ivy and a statue. The painting measures 25" wide by 31" high. The heavy ornate gold frame measures 31" by 40". Very stable craquelure.
