There are a few in the databases that I have searched but none that match that I can figure. I believe the artist is either French or Italian. Definitely a continental school work. Oil on canvas measuring 16 1/4 x 13 inches. Overall in very good condition.
There is a small hole in the canvas that has been repaired long ago just above the signature. Other craquelere throughout the painting but still very stable. A few other minor scuffs and tiny pin holes. There look to be some touch up spots to the background in the upper portion but really it is still a beautiful painting. A young maiden in a low cut dress with her hat on.
Nails, stretcher and work all date the work to the first half of the 19th century, I believe. Looks to be original frame that show some loss.
Painting put in a great frame would be an outstanding addition to any 19th century portrait collection. Frame measures 22 1/2 x 19 1/2 inches. CHECK THE PICTURES ON THIS GREAT PIECE.If you have any questions regarding the work, please dont hesitate to ask. Pictures are an excellent indication of condition. I guarantee and stand 100% behind everything I sell.
