Portrait Of A Young Continental Lady
A fine late 19th-century bust-length portrait of a young lady dressed in a black bodice (or dress). It’s a shame that the artist’s details are unknown as it’s clearly painted by a skilful hand.
Note how the subject’s outline gently fades into its background, giving emphasis to the young lady’s face. While her smile is so subtle, it’s almost imperceptible.
