A charming early 19th-century portrait of a demure young lady holding a small posy of flowers. She’s wearing a brown and blue bell-shaped dress, white apron, and pink neckerchief.

It’s likely that the artist was a keen amateur and perhaps even a friend or family member. We love the way they’ve captured her expression as she stands patiently for her portrait.

The canvas has seen better days but it’s fine to hang and would make a nice addition to your mantle or gallery wall.
