|Oil on stretched canvas, with oval gilt wood liner, this portrait of a young blonde girl is beautifully painted. She holds a bouquet of flowers, and in the background there are subtly painted foliate elements. The sight size of the oval is 23" x 19", the stretcher measures 27" x 20", and the liner is slightly larger. The surface shows craquelure with some minor flaking, and appears to need cleaning of darkened varnish, particularly in the background. Older restoration is evident from wax patches on the back. NOTE: Color appears a bit paler in photos and there is some light reflection on surface. There is no evidence of visible signature or monogram. Well painted, with lovely subject matter, this is an extremely attractive portrait, and would benefit from light cleaning and appropriate frame.|
