19th Century German School, Portrait Of A Lady With A Bonnet
A characterful portrait of a middle-aged lady wearing a blue dress and a fancy lace bonnet with a bow.
We love the way she’s peering to one side - perhaps a little awkwardly. She seems like quite a shy lady or maybe she’s just looking forward to wearing something more comfortable.
We’ve dated the portrait to around 1840 but it could be earlier.

Overall size: 10” x 13” / 26cm x 33cm
