19th-Century French School, Portrait Of A Girl With A Bird Pendant

19th-Century French School, Portrait Of A Girl With A Bird Pendant

A mid-19th-century French school portrait of a girl in a blue dress. It’s an intriguing little painting that draws you in and it’s interesting to consider who this young lady was. The artist has painted her bird pendant particularly nicely and it holds a small stone. So perhaps this has some kind of significance with regards to her family.

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.
