Flora Thomas - Self-Portrait - 1906

This self-portrait was painted in 1906 when she was 38 years old. She appears seated before her easel and looking at the viewer in apparent semi-darkness. Oil on canvas glued to hardboard. Good general condition, with minor wrinkling in the lower left third. On the back, possibly the name of a previous owner: D.N (?) Knight. The Art Nouveau frame with carved floral motifs is likely original.
