Important French Portrait from the 19th century. The young maiden portrayed is pervaded by a veil of melancholy probably due to an imminent departure, given the clothes she is wearing, making the painting very intimate and charming. The elegant theme and the pictorial quality positions the author of the painting amongst the masters of French portrait painters of that period. The pictorial quality is evident. The work echoes the work previously done by a great artist like Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun placing itself some decades later and taking inspiration. There is some writing on the bottom left (Adrien Racine) (illegible date 1866?) in very elaborate block letters which could indicate the author of the work or most likely, as was usual at the time, the person portrayed. The work is presented in a coeval frame of good value and high quality. The work and frame are in good condition with some restoration already done and that needs to be done and with some appropriate signs of wear (the photos attached to the auction are an integral part of the description).

    Il pacco è stato regolarmente spedito 3 giorno dopo la segnalazione di catawiki dell'avvenuto pagamento. Dopo il tentativo di consegna fallito per irreperibilità del ricevente (Destinatario irreperibile probabile indirizzo sbagliato cosi comunica GLS) il pacco è stato fermo circa 10 giorni a Berlino prima di essere stato regolarmente consegnato allo stesso indirizzo.. La recensione è stata scritta prima di contattarmi (cosa poi avvenuta con mia celere risposta). Ad oggi il pacco è stato regolarmente consegnato e il ritardo non è sicuramente dovuto ad una mia lentezza nella spedizione.
