"Miniature On Ivory Gouache Portrait Of A Young Woman In A Beaded Gilt Bronze Frame"
Made on a thin oval-shaped ivory plate, this beautifully sized miniature, painted in gouache in the style of the 18th century, represents a lovely young woman with blue eyes and perfect skin tone. Her gray-white powdered hair, held back by numerous ribbons, falls in large curls elegantly arranged over her shoulders. She is wearing a blond straw hat decorated with a garland of roses. Her white bodice decorated with blue lace and ribbon ends in a large and supple bow; a fine pearl necklace adorns her neck. This miniature is painted in shades of blue with infinite shades and delicate color gradients. See the shadows on the background on either side of the shoulders. A work of finesse ... Its gilt bronze frame finely chiseled with a garland of roses is edged with pearls. It has its original glass slightly bubbled and irregular. French school of the XIXth century. View: 11 cm x 8, 2 cm With its frame: 13, 5 cm x 10, 6 cm Good condition. It is old, some signs of wear and friction (see photos).
