Portrait Of A Young Lady With Curls

DESCRIPTION

An elegant early 20th-century Swiss portrait of a young lady with curled hair.

A supplier’s stamp on the back helps to date this portrait to the early 20th century. It refers to “Rupf & Schneider, Bern & Zurich“ and we’ve been able to find copies of advertisements for this company that were published between 1919 and 1930. It would appear that it was framed around the same time as a frame maker’s stamp refers to ‘Vitrerie’ of Lausanne.

Intriguingly, someone has also left an inscription in pencil but as this was created many years ago, only a vague indentation remains. Perhaps with further detective work, you could uncover the identity of this young lady along with the artist that painted her.

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.
