An early 20th-century portrait of a young lady in a silk blouse and orange necktie by German painter, Richard Von Hagn (1850-1933).

There’s a gentle delicacy to this portrait and a sense of shyness in the sitter. Her demure expression and subtle smile are offset by a deep red background.

Richard Von Hagn was well-respected in his day and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden. He spent many years of his adult life in Venice, which became a second home for him, but returned to Dresden later in life. His contemporaries considered him to be a little introverted and he opted to dedicate his life to his art rather than settle down with a family.

The painting is housed within a stylish Art Deco frame and signed in the lower right.
