Classical Portrait Of A Young Girl In A White Dress, Ca. 1825

Probably American Ca. 1825

A charming full length oil on canvas Classical portrait of an elegantly dressed young girl. She is standing next to what appears to be a Boston area carved mahogany table holding a shawl in her left hand and a basket of flowers in her right. A hat is atop the shawl resting on the table. Her brown hair hangs in ringlets down to her shoulders and wears what is possibly a coral string necklace. The frame is a high quality gold leafed wood replacement in the style of the period.
