Antique Original Oil on Canvas Petite Painting of Woman At Writing Desk

This small yet evocative painting is reminiscent of days gone by as a woman writes or reads letters by lamplight in the fading hours of the day. The sitting room includes a curved Swedish sofa/settee and paintings hung on the wall. The lamp generates a soft glow, accenting the outline of her form and papers resting on the table. There is age related craceluer seen throughout the small painting. A diagonal scratch runs from the top right to bottom 1/3rd on left but is barely visible when hung for viewing; minor paint loss along lower edge(due to and hidden by frame) and lower right corner. The gold painted wood frame reveals scratches, marks, distress throughout and minor separation at the corners. While this painting may benefit from cleaning, we leave that to the discretion of the buyer.
