Portrait of a Stunning Young Lady, By George Hill, Dated 1930

Portrait of a Beautiful 1930s Lady
Dated 1930
By George Hill (1898-1969)
Stunning Large Scale Painting in Gilt Frame
Oil on Canvas
Framed 39″ x 43″
Offered at $2400.- SOLD

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!

Oil Painting of a Gentleman | Large 19th Century Victorian Portrait

19TH Century Portrait of a Gentleman
By Florence A. Ross (1870-1949)
RHA (Royal Hibernian Academy)
Framed 30″x36″(canvas approximately 23 1/2″x 29 1/4″)
Oil on Canvas
Large Portrait
SOLD
Offering a large oil painting of a Victorian gentleman. The painting is of Irish origin and was painted by a very skilled artist. The details are incredibly well executed and the use of shadows, light and proportions make the portrait exceptionally lifelike. The portrait is almost full scale, hence the painting is fairly large. It’s surrounded by a fine looking vintage frame, with a strong wire on the back.
The letters RHA appear before the artists signature.  RHA is a Dublin based institution, founded in 1823.  The institution was originally chartered by 30 Irish artists to promote the arts.  Florence A. Ross had attended the RHA.
The painting has some distress and repairs to the skin on the forehead and cheek. There are two small torn areas on the left side and some very small areas of missing paint. The canvas is tightly stretched and well secured. I can imagine the portrait rested above a fireplace for many years, which explains the missing paint.

Pansies in oil on canvas

A lovely small oil painting created in Massachusetts and framed by, Meekins, Packard & Wheat, Inc., of Springfield, MA.  The backing paper shows the label of the long gone department store, which was once very prominent in Western Massachusetts.  The frame itself is rather delicate and has some corner damage. This happens to be common with old gilded plaster frames.

The details and composition are charming and the artist was certainly trained.  The painting certainly shows a great deal of Realism in technique.  No signature is present, so the artist is unknown.

Circa 1910-1920
