This little girl should probably be sitting quietly in her chair..but her curiosity and sense of play has her leaning over the back, to touch and admire the vase of flowers behind her. What a characterful portrait this is, her face and features captured to show her innocence but also her sense of victorian era mischief.
The painting is in good condition with small spots of scattered paint loss as seen in the photos.
19th Century,Oil on board, in its original gilt wood frame. Original hanging chain to the back.
Measures including frame: 28.5cm wide, 39cm high.
