Sicilian Lady

$650.00

Original Antique portrait: 19th-century Italian school brown monochrome oil painting on canvas.

The surface of the canvas has a few profound textures from a broad brushstroke, specifically on the sitter's outfit and in her hair. The movement of the brush varies subtly creating a sort of blended overall effect, with deep shadows, a light on the face and a gentle erasure of features. The work was created in only a few earth tones, and resembles more primitive works, but seems to be a poetic style choice by this painter from the early 1900's. In different lights the painting color changes from red to clay to a cooler brown.
