Antique French female portrait signed bottom right P Chardin (Paul Louis Léger Chardin 1833-1918) and dated 1874, Ville d'Avray.  This delightful treasure of a painting is simple and unassuming but at the same time, very attractive.  A woman, who I believe is Madame E Desaugiere sits on a large red studded chair.  She looks away from the artist, deep in thought, her blue eyes complimented by a blue neck tie stored neatly under her white collar. Her arms are folded and the white cuffs of her shirt add interest.   


Medium: Oil on stretched canvas.

Overall size: 17.5ins x 20ins or 44cms x 51cms (Approx)

Date: 1874
