Early 20th-Century French School Portrait Of A Lady

Early 20th-Century French School Portrait Of A Lady

A fine early 20th-century portrait of a lady wearing a black dress and a long gold chain. She could be in the later stages of mourning.

How do you read her expression? For me, I see a sadness in the eyes but a strength to carry on regardless. She looks directly at us with an inner steel to her character.

The portrait is signed ‘Lebrun’, dated 1902, and housed within a decorative foliate frame.

Overall size: 14” x 16½” / 36cm x 42cm
Year of creation: 1902
