Portrait Of A Lady Holding A Glass

This charming mid-18th-century German oil painting depicts a young lady holding a wine glass.

There’s a celebratory air to this portrayal and perhaps it signifies her coming of age. The white gown alludes to purity, while the necklace and bracelet signify wealth. Her outfit aligns with the fashion of the period and her wide sleeve cuffs are known as ‘manches à la raquette’.

The portrait was acquired in Germany but it could equally be of Hungarian origin.

Held within a later frame.
