Oil on canvas - Signed with initials bottom right and dated 1903.

Technique: Oil on canvas
Year: 20th century
Edition: Original
Condition: Overall in fairly good condition
Title of artwork: Portrait of an important lady.
Signature: Signed

I am offering for auction a superb and very impressive early 20th century large oval oil on canvas of an important lady wearing two medals. Signed bottom right with initials U. P and dated 1903. In a lovely gilt oval frame. I have no idea who the lady is or the name of the artist. Clearly an important lady and by a very good artist as the painting is finely done. Painting looks like it had a name plate at the top of the frame which is now missing.

Further research is required to discover artist and subject. Possibly German or Austrian? Someone will know.

The painting measures 92 x 68 cm. The frame measures 109 x 85 cm.

The painting is in fairly good condition. Please look at all images for accurate condition. One small blemish to canvas. Might do with a clean. Frame has some wear. Ready to hang as it is.

Postage via DPD, UPS or Parcelforce depending on country. Please be aware of postal charges as its a larger painting.
