An Exceptional German Portrait, Oil On Canvas, Signed And Dated 1861
This is an exceptional antique portrait painting that dates from 1861. Discovered recently in Germany this remarkable oil on canvas painting is exquisite in its fine artistique quality as well as the fascinating beauty of the sitter. The details of this artwork are just superbe: it is painted in the post Biedermeier period known for its refined beauty and elegance. The canvas is still on its original wood stretcher that measures about 61 x 51 cm or approximately 24 x 20 inches. It is signed and dated on the right side: 'Alfred R Diethe, Dresden, 1861'. Considering its age it is in lovely antique condition with minor signs of ageing and exactly as I discovered it. For the full condition please refer ot the images!
