A most unusual dark portrait of a lady in a black hat. She could perhaps be wearing her mourning wear, which would make the painting a mark of respect for a lost spouse or relative. This seems likely as it bears a date of 1919, just one year after the end of World War I.

It’s signed in the upper left and housed within an appropriate later frame.
