Belgian School - Portrait de Dame - 1867

Belgian School - Portrait de Dame - 1867

Portrait of elegant young woman seated sideways in an armchair. She wears a beautiful black silk dress accompanied by a black silk shawl with pink lining. In one hand she holds kid gloves. Her black lace bonnet, her white lace collar with blue bow and a short pendant with a gold and emerald crucifix complete the ensemble. Her mildly sullen look leads us to imagine she may be a recent widow.
