Very Fine 18th Century French Masterpiece Oil On Canvas Portrait Of A Lady
A Superlative Late 18th Century French Oil on Canvas of a Fine Young Lady Reading a Letter. A quite magnificent masterpiece oil on original unlined canvas of a beautiful young French lady reading a letter probably written to her by the gentleman who is depicted in the miniature portrait on the table in front of her... Exceptionally well painted with fine detailing and exquisite use of light coming over her left shoulder and onto the letter. Very much of it's period - probably Directoire France (1795 - 1799) but maybe a decade earlier - and clearly French in origin.

A sumptuous work by a master of the genre and housed in it's superb original carved gilt wood frame which is a work of art in itself. A strikingly decorative'Country House' piece which would grace even the finest of homes.

In first class order throughout with only a very small area of craquelure above and to the right of her head.... The paint surface absolutely sound. The work is unlined and very original - on it's first stretcher with the remnants of various French perforated labels here and there. One of the highest calibre portraits I have handled in a long time - ready to hang and grace any environment.

Measurements including the frame 40" x 33". I hope you will afford me the privilege of taking time to look at my offerings on here. I will offer you honesty and transparency.

I will clearly show you the entire work of art - front and back - and detail all it's good and bad points. I will not be vague about age or provenance or any later work carried out. I also offer inspection at my home on all pieces with no obligation.

It has to be good enough to grace my own home should it not sell. I hope you will find something you like - please message me with questions - You will find me accommodating and friendly. This is the exact cost to me. Some larger paintings can require a courier who will personally deliver to you...

This may take a little longer to arrive. For international carriage costs please message me. Best wishes and thank you for looking.
