The artist was clearly well trained, and chose an overall palette of muted somber tones to emphasize that this was not just a pretty picture of a client, but was a character study of the underlying personality of the woman.
This fine example is in excellent condition, with no cracks, bowing, or restoration. (The light portion at the top of the photo is due to reflection.) It is housed in its original case of gilded brass, with a nicely woven plait of hair in the glazed aperture on the reverse. Sight size is 2 3/8" by 2", and the locket size is 2 1/2" by 2 1/8".
