A sensitive early-20th-century portrait of a young lady wearing a white blouse with her hair swept back into a bun.

The artist, Gustav Wustmann (1873-1939), has used a mossy green background colour which accentuates the sitter’s striking eyes. It’s a delicate portrayal that suggests a gentle character.

Wustmann was the son of a great historian by the same name and studied at the Academies in Leipzig and Munich.

The portrait is housed within a decorative wooden frame with foliate corner ornamentation and gilded borders. Signed in the upper left.

There’s a lighter area towards the top which is probably due to how the paper was attached to the panel. There are also a few fine lines running through the top of the image. One small area of paint loss in the lower right. Frame with light age-related wear.
