FRENCH VICTORIAN OIL PAINTING WOMAN IN RED HAT - For Sale

FRENCH VICTORIAN OIL PAINTING WOMAN IN RED HAT
Price: $900.00
French Victorian oil on canvas painted portrait of a young woman in a red hat. France, 19th century. Rectangular frame measures 14 1/2inches X 16 3/4 inches. Painting itself is seen through an oval 8 3/4 X 11 inches, but is actually done on a rectangular canvas. The painting depicts a young woman wearing a white shawl over her shoulders, a black necklace around her neck and long gold earrings - typcically Victorian in style. She also wears a stunning red hat with a huge bow in the front and at the back is more of the white soft cloth that makes her shawl. Her hair is a deep, rich auburn (reddish - brown). She has full, red lips, a wonderful complexion and a fabulous expression of a strong and beautiful woman. The portrait is much more than just another pretty face, but shows a woman of character and class. The mottled green and brown background sets of the red of her hat, peachy cheeks and mouth very successfully. The artist is clearly highly accomplished and professional. His name was printed on a gold lable on the front of the painting, but has, unfortunately, largely disappeared, so we do not know who he/she was. Clearly, a highly proficient artist. The frame and gold surround are not in good condition. They are original to the painting and have various losses / cracks - see photos. The painting itself IS in good condition and is protected under glass. All ''photos were taken through the glass, so bear with the slight reflections and play of light.
