Lady on Metal
Antique oil painting from France: This portrait is typical of the French school movement of the 19th century. This lady was painted on a metal surface (tin), with beautiful mastery. The features of the face and the red palette of the cheekbones are very realistic. The facial expression is subtly transposed, supported by the deep gaze of the model's light brown eyes. Her hair and her coat have a patina effect due to an aging of the metal. This effect is scattered along the background.
