$750.00

A haunting oil on canvas portrait. The subject is stark, yet serene. Very fine condition throughout. Beautifully detailed, from the foliate carving in the chair's gilded arm to the gigot sleeves of the subject's gown. She wears neither jewelry nor lace, unusual in that these were symbols of social status. The gilt frame is not original, but has been with her for generations, its fancy design a pleasing juxtaposition to this rather austere work. 32"W X 37"T framed; 29 1/4"T X 25"W visual image; 3"D. No sign of restoration or repair. A gentle cleaning will enhance the detail. Originally $900, now $750 plus shipping.  If you have questions or would like to see pictures, please email with specifics. For a shipping quote, kindly email us your zip code or country.
