Lovely original oil painting of two ladies in formal gowns. Notice the woman in the foreground, how the light cast upon her face, shoulder, and the folds of her blue gown creates an evocative feel. The woman in the shadow is holding a book, while her opulent pearl necklace indicates she is a lady of substance and wealth. The canvas appears to have been relined then mounted on a board. The painting is unsigned and displayed in a gilt wood frame. Please enlarge the close up photos to appreciate the details of this painting and frame.
