Mid 19th Century Pastel - A Troubled Young Woman



A striking pastel portrait showing a young woman in distress. The portrait seems to take inspiration from Caravaggio's "Gorgon," shown in the facial expression. The artist has captured a great deal of emotion in this portrait.

The picture is unsigned and presented in a fine, glazed, gilt effect frame with floral strapwork.

On wove.


The drawing has a large water damage mark over the left edge that spreads across the top left corner and upper edge. There is some foxing to the surface and discolouration. There are several white marks to the top third of the drawing. The frame has a loss to the top left corner and a crack to the top edge. There are two pin holes in the frame at the middle of both side edges. There is general scuffing to the frame surface.
