An early 20th-century portrait of a lady wearing a black dress and a pearl-set crucifix pendant. Itís a captivating piece thatís brimming with atmosphere.
The background is particularly intriguing and itís interesting to consider what the artist was trying to achieve. It appears as if sheís merged with her environment - the foliage of a tree surrounding her figure. The sentiment is a little reminiscent of the Art Nouveau movement, which is characterised by organic forms and a merging of figures with the natural world. The Art Nouveau period ran from around 1890 to 1910 so could've been an influence here.
The portrait is housed within a gilded frame thatís possibly its original.
