Portrait of a Woman – German School – Circa 1830

Categories: , ,


Portrait of a German woman, painted around 1830. The sitter is wearing a green taffeta dress with embroidered sleeves, and an embroidered lace collar. We must highlight here her abundant display of jewellery: diamond and pearl gold earrings; a gold chain with a diamond and pearl cross and gold watch with red coral brooch; a gold ring with diamonds; all symbols of our sitter’s high social status. She likely belonged to the commercial upper bourgeoisie.
