Make An Enquiry

This late 19th-century British portrait study depicts a lady wearing a black hat with a veil. It’s an intriguing little mystery.

With an enigmatic expression, she peers back across the decades - captured in pencil and watercolour over a century ago. Given the dark veil, she’s possibly in mourning, her gentle eyes alluding to a story. Yet her dress appears more colourful, so it’s not entirely obvious.

The work is unsigned but it’s most probably a study, perhaps by an amateur artist rather than a student. There’s a sensitivity, which suggests they know each other.

What can you see in her eyes?
