Mid-20th-Century American School, Portrait Of A Woman

Mid-20th-Century American School, Portrait Of A Woman

A stylish mid-20th-century American school portrait of a woman dressed in dark blue. She reminds us a little of Grace Kelly’s effortless style so perhaps she’s also an actress or model.

We love the glance, the carefully fixed hairstyle, and the smoky background. It’s a portrait that captures one of the high points in 20th-century female fashion.

Medium: Oil on canvas
Overall size: 22½” x 28” / 57cm x 72cm
Year of creation: c. 1950
Provenance: USA

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
