18th Century Pastel Portrait of a Georgian Lady attributed to John Russell RA 1745-1806
Product Ref. 872885
We are delighted to offer a beautiful and ethereal 18th Century pastel portrait of a Georgian Lady. Wearing a royal blue dress with chiffon neckline, the lady's hair tumbles gently on her shoulders. A faint beauty spot can be seen on her right cheek and a touch of rouge, both very fashionable for the period.
This beautiful pastel painting comes glazed and mounted in a gilt moulded frame.
There is no visible signature.
On the reverse of the painting is written;
'Sally Callard, John Russell RA'
Which leads us to believe the artist may have been John Russell RA or possibly a follower of John Russell, as the medium and style is very much in keeping with the artist. However, neither can be verified.
Both the painting and frame are in good condition commensurate with age.
