ANTIQUE NUMBER SA1068565: Early 19th-century German School, Portrait Of A Lady With A Letter - Antique Oil Painting

Early 19th-century German School, Portrait Of A Lady With A Letter - Antique Oil Painting

£1,295    $1,645    €1,531
This charming early 19th-century German oil painting depicts a young lady holding a letter sealed with wax.
 
Completed in around 1835, the detailed approach adopted here is synonymous with the ‘Biedermeier’ style, which influenced painting, interiors and architecture in central Europe. It was a period of increased wealth for the rising middle classes and artists were in high demand.
 
The sitter appears to be in mourning, perhaps for a parent, and wears an elegant off-the-shoulder black dress with accompanying black jewellery. The stones in the ring and bracelet are probably jet.
 
The portrait is unsigned but it’s by a well-trained hand.
 
Held within a gilt frame, which is probably original.
