19th-Century Provincial Portrait Of A Girl With A Bird & Dog

19th-Century Provincial Portrait Of A Girl With A Bird & Dog

A naive early 19th-century French school portrait of a girl with a bird and dog. This unusual decorative piece was probably produced for the family by a local (or travelling) artist.

It’s a good example of naive 19th-century folk art and what it lacks in accuracy it makes up for in charm.
