Portrait Of An English Lady, ca. 1840
19th century oil on canvas portrait showing a young woman of society wearing the fashion and hairstyle of the 1840s. Whilst this is most likely the work of a provincial artist, the expression is arresting and captures a Brontësque mood. Original wood and gesso frame, some loss of gilding on the frame and accidents. Original hook ring in bronze.
