19th Century Oil Painting of a Woman's Portrait

Item Details


An antique oil painting on canvas. This portrait depicts a 19th century woman in both a three-quarters view as she looks over her shoulder and a head-on view with hair curled on the sides. Both depictions are layered over one another and floating in a clouded dusk sky. The piece is painted with attention to detail and fine, almost imperceptible brushstrokes. It is unsigned and presented in a gilt wood and gesso frame with a circular sight edge and ornate floral cartouche molding. The work is wired to the verso for hanging.
