Offering a beautifully painted portrait of a young lady in a seated pose, with Classical styled clothing. The style has it’s roots in the 19th Century Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. There are several features, which indicate Pre-Raphaelite elements and overall feel. The composition and colours are exceptional. A very well painted portrait, with fantastic detail. The painting is nearly scaled to life-size, therefore the painting is rather large.
The gilt frame is of a very high quality, consisting of two frame layers. The gilding is in fine condition, with only minimal areas of it scratched off. The frame is very well constructed and heavy. Definitely suited to a finely painted portrait. It appears the frame was custom made from the same period, meaning it was likely original to the painting.
There are many fine cracks and puckers in the painting, but no missing paint or fading. Vibrant colour and details make it timeless. The paint seems to be firmly affixed to the high quality canvas. The painting hung over an old New England fireplace mantle, hence the distressed texture to the paint surface.
She’s absolutely lovely!
