Early 19th Century
With her cropped spiral curls and pearl jewellery, this blushing young lady has a timeless quality. She wears a décolleté pale pink dress with a mauve bodice over a white underslip and with a jewelled brooch on her corsage.
Painted with an attractive rose and blue background, the portrait is set in a silver frame with canted corners that is enclosed on the back. There is light dust under the glass and a small underchip to the glass on the bottom right corner.
