Watercolor Painting Portrait of a Young Girl with Roses
This lovely watercolor portrait shows a young girl holding a rose in one hand with a basket of flowers on her other arm. She is wearing an attractive Victorian period dress with a diamond pattern in two shades of blue. The off-the-shoulder neckline displays her picture-perfect shoulder-length wavy hair. By her dress and hairstyle, this portrait can be dated to the 1820s-1840s since beginning in the 1850’s watercolor portrait paintings were replaced mainly by photographic images. The image is framed in maple wood with an inner border of parcel gilt
Dimensions: 9.5″ tall x 8.5″ wide x 1″ deep
Condition: Generally excellent, with minor cosmetic wear to the parcel gilding on the frame.
