Portrait of an American Girl with Beautiful Eyes

 

 

I love portraits of little girls with all their beauty and freshness.

This one however, this little American girl must be my favourite of all.  Just look at her eyes.

 

She  is painted on canvas, but has been cut down a little and glued to board.  The reason on the reverse paper states that "woodwork killed the stretcher"  Such a shame but to me this does not detract from the painting.

 

Mounted in a maple frame.

 

Probably American, mid 19th century.

 

Frame:  23” x 16”  59 x 42cm
