Lady in Renaissance Dress

Oil on Panel, retaining labels on reverse

Painting Size: 12.5" x 9.5"
Frame Size: 18.5" x 15.5"

This portrait is very much in the Pre-Raphaelite manner and shows the influence of such artists as Burne-Jones and Rossetti; the young woman having a somewhat mournful visage, strong chin and Roman nose. Her red hair drawn back in a chignon and garlanded with pearls while she is apparently garbed in a Renaissance dress and jewels are all motifs used by the Pre-Raphaelite artists.
