Diogene Ulysse Napoleon Maillart, Portrait Of A Woman

A beautiful portrait of a woman by French painter, Diogene Ulysse Napolean Maillart (1840-1926). It has an enigmatic quality - she’s mysterious, eyes rich with history and the sense of a lost story.

Maillart was a wonderfully gifted painter who won the prestigious Prix de Rome at just 23. He studied at the École des Beaux-arts and exhibited at the Salon in Paris every year until his death in 1926.

The painting is signed in the lower right and housed within a fine period frame with swept corners.
