A beautiful oil on board portrait of an elegant old lady entitled 'Victoriana'.
We love the simple tones and gentle side profile view of the sitter who's clothes and pose give the appearance of an elderly Victorian lady. The painting has a gorgeous weathered and worn appearance. There is a small section missing in the top right corner and some general crackling of the paint but this just adds to it's elegant rustic charm.
The original artist's label is still attached to the back of the board and gives the artist's name, the painting's title, measurements and price - 6 guineas (the unit of currency which continued to be used for art and other luxury items well into the 1970s). We believe this painting dates from the 1950s/60s.
