Lady Blue

$650.00
Original oil painting: A powerful work thanks to its imposing frame in carved wood and gilded stucco. This portrait from the French school of the 19th century represents a woman in dark clothes, wearing a blue bonnet with brilliant straps.
The dominance of the dark makes the blue scarf spring up, which is itself sublimated by the gilding of the frame.
