Early 18th Century Continental School Antique Portrait of a Lady

Information

A charming early 18th Century antique head and shoulders portrait of a lady set within a roundel.

Sourced from a private collection based in the West Midlands.

Depicted wearing a silk dress dress and robes.

Sitter and artist unknown.

Her right breast slightly exposed but hidden by a bowl of fruit, the grapes signifying lustfullness and lewd thoughts however the uneaten peaches are a reminder of virtue.  

Presented in a handmade "hogarth" style frame. 

Conditon - minor surface abrasion to the bottom right corner (see image). Overall though, in good order for her age.

We ship worldwide!
