19th-Century English School, Portrait Of A Young Lady With A Pink Sash

19th-Century English School, Portrait Of A Young Lady With A Pink Sash

This charming 19th-century English school portrait depicts a lady wearing a white dress with a pink sash and bow. Her left arm rests upon a giltwood chair.

Given her outfit, the portrait probably dates to around 1880 when styles had become noticeably more refined and lacked the weight of the previous decades. Large voluminous dresses had been replaced by simpler designs yet still retained trims and frills. Here, the lady is probably wearing a bustle, which emphasises the back while keeping the front fairly flat.

She holds a small posy and stands before upland scenery.
