Offered for sale is a charming early 19th century German oil painting on canvas of a young noblewoman in the style of Joseph Karl Stieler (1751 - 1858). The Bavarian artist was known for the “Gallery of Beauties at Nymphenburg Palace in Munich”, which he painted as appointed court artist for King Ludwig I of Bavaria. The subtle background, which emphasizes the sitter is typical of Stieler’s style, putting a direct focus on the subject and his penchant for pretty women with corkscrew curls.
The painting is housed in a period giltwood frame, which is in excellent restored condition. The painting is nicely detailed, delightful to behold, and the aged canvas is in very good condition.
