A very fine early 19th century portrait with exceptional embroidered dress and landscape.

Whilst the use of water colour with silk was a popular medium, the use of oils in combination with embroidered silk is unusual.

The large portrait of a fashionably dressed young woman was probably commissioned and the work of a professional artist.

The embroidery possibly worked by the sitter herself is worked in rick floss silks

Circa 1820

Contained in original gilt frame
