A charming early 20th-century portrait of Madame Ernestine Maudet (1880-1971) by French painter, Pierre Petit. She’s wearing a black dress, pearl necklace and fur coat draped off the shoulder.
We particularly love her expression, which speaks of curiosity, life, and joy.
Ernestine Maudet was born in the Val D’Oise region of France, which is to the north of Paris. Ancestry records describe her mother as a glovemaker and her father as a chairmaker.
The portrait is signed in the lower left.
