A fine oil on canvas portrait of a young woman in a brown dress and blue lace trimmed hat, with a column and red drape behind her. Stylistically, this would be from the Philadelphia School. Sight size is 30" by 24 1/2" and the overall size is 35 1/4" by 30".
The portrait is in its original gilded frame, which is in very fine shape, with the normal minor nicks. The stretcher also appears to be original. Overall, the painting is in excellent condition, but has has been relined, and has a small amount of extremely minor inpainting. Wooden squares were placed at the corners of the stretcher to reinforce the joints.
A wonderful piece of folk art.
