|Here we have a splendid painting of a young woman admiring a string of pearls. She sits half on her kitchen table, holding the necklace up in the light for a better view. She seems delighted. The painting is signed MALANIA 1874, in script. I've tried several time to get a shot of the signature, but have been unable to. It is in a fine gesso frame. There is a small patch on the back, about 1/4" square. There is some minor in painting in the lower left and lower right corners. There are some small repairs and touch ups to the frame in the corners. The painting measures 26" by 31" in the frame and 16" by 20" inside the frame. I do not know the country of origin, nor have I located any information about the artist.|
