Object Description

This intimate portrait of a young woman was painted by the celebrated late 19th Century Czech-born artist, Alfred Seifert. The woman in the painting wears a sheer white piece of clothing and delicately holds a pinky-red rose in her right hand. She gazes off into the distance to the viewer’s left, looking misty-eyed and thoughtful. In its subject matter, this painting is a prime example of what is commonly referred to as the ‘Seifert type’ of portrait.

The woman has been rendered using short, well-blended brushstrokes, revealing Seifert’s skill in naturalistic painting. The lighting is soft and warm, highlighting the woman’s youthful beauty.

The painting is set in a beautiful giltwood frame that is ornamented with scrolling foliage and flowers.
