A DRAMATICALLY PAINTED PORTRAIT OF A WOMAN WEARING JEWELRY

A DRAMATICALLY PAINTED PORTRAIT OF A WOMAN WEARING JEWELRY

#3028

This dramatic painting crosses the border between folk and academic art.  The extravagance of the sitter's setting, costume, and jewelry are likewise anomalies.  I think the painting is from a coastal NE city or from New York. It is dated 1838, and signed 'P---Platt.  It has been strip-lined and has a very minor surface repair.
