(Active around 1840) Hip portrait of a lady with a pearl necklace. This representative, finely painted artwork is artistically outstanding. It depicts a noble lady in profile, dressed in a black gown and a delicate black lace stole, which effectively covers her forearms and part of her shoulder in a transparent manner. The painting showcases the high art of Viennese portrait painting during the Biedermeier era, in which artists such as Friedrich von Amerling, Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller, and Josef Danhauser were prominent and influential figures. Oil on canvas; 100 cm x 82 cm. Framed. Austrian portrait painter active circa 1840.
