Description

The painting is unsigned and undated. Appears to have been painted over top of an advertisement of some sort that can partially be seen through the portrait and advertises a kind of furnishing and dry good store in NY. Painting is likely late 19th century. Portrait of a young woman wearing a short green overcoat with gold detailing and pink shirt with a red cap with gold detailing. Possibly depicts an Eastern European immigrant. Artist laid oil on heavily in some areas. Coloring is nice and muted. Young woman sits against a dark background and leans against a wooden table. Matted with color complementary detailing and mounted in ornate gilded frame. Note on back states that painting was procured in the early 70s in Chili, NY and came with a painting by Harvey Otis Long. Print appears to have slight surface abrasion. Measures 11.75 inches by 15.75 inches sight and 24.25 inches by 28.25 inches framed.
