Portrait Of A Reclining Nude

Regular price £795.00

DESCRIPTION

An exquisite early 19th-century French portrait of a reclining nude wrapped in beautiful silks and laying on a red throw.

From the moment we spotted this ethereal work, we’ve been captivated by its presence. It seems to blend a sumptuous air of classical elegance with a moment of complete romantic abandon. It’s an absolute joy in person and one of our favourite paintings in the collection to date. It’s very special indeed and was recently held in a private Parisian collection.

There’s a good chance that it’s also much older than the date we’ve estimated as it’s been relined so it’s tricky to tell.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
