Victorian Oil Painting | Portrait of a Somber Woman
Dated 1877, this mid-Victorian era portrait depicts a somber woman with rich brown hair drawn up in braids, wearing pearl droplets and a simple golden cross around her throat.
Description of the Portrait
She is wrapped in a coat of black with a slight ruffle around the collar, yet it is the delicate flurry of lace at her throat that demands the most attention, marking the rise of mass production and accessibility of luxuries such as bolts of lace. Given the plain backdrop and obscure artist’s name, one might be curious if this was a self-portrait, or one done by a dear friend or family member.
