|Probably Massachusetts or Maine, ca. 1830-1840.|
Attributed to George Hartwell who was closely associated with William Matthew Prior and Sturtevant Hamblin.
Pleasant seated young lady in stylized scroll-back chair in soft colors holding book with rose and landscape embellishments. Painted in the desirable flat style without shade or shadow.
Consistent with Hartwell in overall look and feel, and in the three-quarter length view, two-toned lips, and smooth areas in varying shades on the cheeks, noses, and under the brows to suggest modeling. This compares to typical Prior-Hamblin portraits that are about half this size.
