19th Century Cottage Interior Character Portrait
Medium: Oil painting
Image Size: 45 cm x 35 cm or 17.75" x 13.75" (Unframed)
Gorgeous! Just gorgeous! 19th Century Cottage Interior with evocative figure of old lady to centre - wonderful strong character face. Lovely kitten sipping milk in the background.
Oil on Board indistinctly signed initials are D W and start of surname is H but I cannot read the rest (see last scan below).
Lovely Details of domestic interior including the cat to bottom right .
Condition: The painting also has two scratches which can be seen - so would need some restoration to make it absolute mint. But I think it looks fine the way it is.
The painting has been varnished at some point. Minor marks at very edge of painting where it was previously in a frame. Back board has wear in places,
However, this is one of the finest paintings I have seen and is just breathtaking.
