Oil on Canvas
Half length portrait of a young lady
Oval frame, the outer with raised flower, leaf-and-tendril pattern
superimposed by convex reposes. Inner torus of leaf and ribbon matched by
the outer . High quality presentation from this period, 1760’s.
The painting is protected by an oval cut glass (6mm) This was removed to allow photography for this site and reinstated. The portrait and frame have been together for 240 years and I am sure that that is what has preserved the work so well. There is a split in the front of the frame but it
is very solid. Canvas is perfect.
