Antique French female portrait from the 1800's.  This is a delightful portrait, traditional, simple and unassuming but at the same time, effective.  A woman sits on a simple chair with a wood back, she looks directly at the artist.  She is relaxed, confident, assertive. Her bodice/jacket gathers her waist tightly and a cotton blouse with lace collar and cuffs adds interest.   


Medium: Oil on stretched canvas.

Overall size: 20ins x 23ins or 50cms x 58cms (Approx)

Date: 1800's

Signed:  No

Condition:  A good visual piece with imperfections associated with age, particularly around the edges of the painting.  The painting has been relined fairly recently, possibly in the 70's or 80's and given a new frame.  At that time there would have been some minor renovation, all this work has been carried out properly by a professional in Paris.  The frame has minor wear and tear and the painting suffers some raised areas on the canvas where the canvas has lifted from the lining (see video).

This painting is sent fully insured, track and trace with Colissimo.
