Object Description

This is a magnificent antique Italian School, 19th Century, oil on canvas painting of a young lady reading a scroll,mid 19th century in date.

This stunning painting features the bust-length portrait of a beautiful young woman, wearing blue and white robes and a white turban with brown waved hair. She is in three-quarter view turning to the left against a dark neutral coloured background, with two people watching her through a window.

The contrast between the white dress of the woman and the dark that surrounds her tends to draw the spectator’s eye to her adorable and likeable face – her calm and serene gaze and her pink healthy lips. It contributes to the peaceful feel of the painting.

It is housed within a stunning Italian Florentine pierced and carved gilded scrolling foliate frame.

Add this splendid antique painting to a very special wall in your home.
