"Portrait Of The Young Women. 1830 Circa."Portrait of the girl intending to paint the weeping willow tree.
Pensive dreamer, wearing a beautiful blue dress.
Very voluminous sleeves indicate the era: the 30s of the 19th century. The river pearl necklace, the white buckled belt, which tightens the waist, are associated with the splendid and very rare white Kashmir shawl.
We can find several examples of shawls worn during the time of the empire by different models, but almost always in red.
Sleeves from this period swelled from the shoulder to the elbow to the point that they needed padding around 1830 to be worn over the shoulders to support volume.
The portrait must certainly be considered as a testament to sentimentality in European culture.
The paint is in excellent condition, after a very delicate cleaning.
