1920s French Portrait Of A Woman In A Blue Top

A gentle 1920s portrait of a young lady wearing a light blue dress with her hair pulled up into side buns. It has a misty dreamlike quality often synonymous with many portraits from the period. She seems lost in her own thoughts as she gazes to our right.

The portrait is housed within a vintage painted wooden frame.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
