1900 American Portrait
This is a very unusual American portrait of a lady. The painting is oil on canvas mounted loosly on a cardboard with tacks. The painting is done in a many layered style which is similar to the style of Albert Pinkham Ryder (1847-1917). It is marked in pencil on the back Ms. Pitts. The painting is marked in the lower right corner with a large capital R. Many of Ryder paintings have been copied; however this would be a very unusual copy. It is a very American Portrait. The painting measures 13 1/2" x 11". Chemical Analysis of the paint shows an average of 4 separate tests were Lead Pb 38.4%, Sulfur S 27%, Arsenic As 4.5%, Zinc Z 3%, Chlorine Cl 1.9%, Iron Fe 1.7%, and Titanium Ti 1.1%.
