Naive Portrait Miniature of a Girl in a Black Dress

 

 

 

A pretty naive watercolour of a young girl in black.  She is holding a piece of fruit in one hand and a basket of flowers in the other.  A gold crucifix hangs from her neck against her black dress.

 

This could be a little girl in mourning?

 

In its original cushion moulded rosewood frame, slip and glass (with some imperfections).  There is some yellowing to the paper but otherwise is lovely ready to hand condition.

 

The white lines seen in the photos are reflections of me I'm afraid.
