RESERVED - Portrait Of A Lady In A Blue Dress

DESCRIPTION

A charming continental portrait of a middle-aged lady in a blue dress and a white blouse. Her hair is parted in the centre and partially pulled back into a bun, which was a style that became popular in the 1840s.

At around the same time, the fashion was also characterised by sloping shoulders, bell-shaped skirts and low-pointed waists, so this lady is certainly dressed to impress.

She’s also wearing beautiful jewellery, which the artist has cleverly highlighted by layering the paint on thickly in those areas.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
