Oil Portrait of Young Lady



This is a very striking head and shoulders portrait of a young lady dressed for the evening in a pale-coloured gown edged with delicate ivory lace. She is also wearing a fine gold necklace with pearl drops and her hair is arranged in long ringlets that frame her face.

The portrait is painted in oils on canvas that has been relined. The artist is unknown. It is presented in a particularly handsome bird’s eye maple veneer frame with gilt slip.
