Portrait of a Woman with Pinks


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description A three-fourths length standing portrait, this painting depicts what appears to be a middle aged or older woman, wearing rings and other jewelry and her hair covered. She stands in front of a curtain and to her right, behind the curtain, a few shelves hold what may be several bottles and books. The contents of the shelves to the rear suggest that she is standing in a study, probably that of her husband, perhaps a physician. A companion portrait of him probably hung to her right, our left. The three-quarter length format, versus just the head or a portrayal of the "sitter" in half-length, was meant to convey status and was more expensive to commission.
