Oil on unlined canvas in the original gilt frame, signed upper right.
This is an absolutely beautiful portrait of the Edwardian period painted shortly before the horrors of the Great War seared Europe.
The attractive young sitter looks serenely out at the viewer, a landscape beyond, an image of calm and peace. She is dressed in very fashionable summer clothing of the period.
The artist has painted with great bravura and a heavy impasto which give a sense of immediacy. As the canvas has never having been lined the impasto is still prominent, as Carter meant it to be.
As is typical with thickly applied paint on canvas a strong craquelure or crazing has developed over the years but it does not detract from the painting.
