Regular price
Added to Cart! View cart or continue shopping.

An adorable 19th-century portrait of a young lady wearing a simple brown dress and a crucifix necklace. She’s been painted with a great deal of affection so perhaps the sitter was known to the artist.

We could only find two other works by Louis Xavier Dordaky (1780-1859) so information on the artist is quite scarce. It seems that he lived in and around Paris and could be considered a genre painter.

The portrait is housed within a 19th-century Rococo revival frame with swept corners and foliate decoration. Signed on the reverse.
