American Lady circa 1800
This lovely lady has arrived in fine condition. She measures 25 x 30. Her head is so high in the painting I wonder if the canvas wasn't cut down sometime and might have been more of a 40 x 50 originally. She was in the catalog as American, ca. 1800. I suspect she is wearing a fashionable wig.
The frame appeared to be newer but when I saw the back I could tell it had some age also. As usual, there are no identifying marks and no name of the sitter or the artist.
