Drawing Portrait Of A Young Victorian Woman
This exquisitely rendered conte drawing of a young woman was purchased from the estate of Francis Jane Patterson. A note on the back indicated this was a gift from her aunt, but the artist and the subject are unnamed. Not only is the quality of the drawing impeccable, but her expression is elusive leaving the viewer to wonder whether she is thoughtful or disappointed. It is quite difficult to convey the delicacy and beauty of this drawing with photographs.

This was originally framed behind glass but the frame was broken. The accident has caused small scuffs to the drawing around the face, please see close up.

13.5" x 17".
