I love her!

She sits on the mantel in our bedroom, I didn't want to hang her, nor having her framed... I feel she must be free :-D

No signature, had been restored at one time.

    What size is the painting Kyra? Do you know who painted her?
  2. mikelv85 mikelv85, 2 years ago
    Well she is lovely Kyra. A frame is like jewelry....and every woman loves jewelry. I bet she wouldn't mind a bit if the right one came along. :)
  3. kyratango kyratango, 2 years ago
    She is 38cm wide by 46.5cm high or little under 15" by 18.1/3".
    Thank you Gillian for your interest and love :-)
    I have no idea of the artist, nor the model id, and think I'll never know!

    Many thanks for loving my dear Lady,
    Jean,
    Aura,
    Lisa,
    Melanie and Mike!

    Kyra - you may find out who she is, and who the artist is. I just discovered those things about a picture of mine, bought years, and years ago on visit to Montreal. And at the weekend, there it was. Online, (can't remember where).

    It's a painting done by a group of women from Montreal who formed a painting group, from 1920-1933.

    An exhibition of their paintings is being shown right now until May at the gallery where I live. Not too far to walk to.

    So nice that you care for the painting now!

    What an amazing portrait! Very fine work of art, kyratango!
  7. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 2 years ago
    Late 1800s, early 1900s?
  8. kyratango kyratango, 2 years ago
    Gillian, maybe one day, "par hasard" :-) Thank you!

    Mike, maybe one day :-)

    Phil, thank you!

    Katherine, I can only agree with all your opinions, including era :-) Thank you!

    Not your every day pose very regal.
  12. kyratango kyratango, 2 years ago
    Alan, nails under a glued paper tape. Thank you for your interest :-)
    Caperkid, for sure not a conventional portrait and person! Thanks for your appreciation!

    Searching for French feminist end of 19th, I came to this:

    What do you think?


  14. martika martika, 2 years ago
    Stunning portrait! And who knows, that lady might be Severine. Surely there is a lot of similarity :)
  15. Gillian, 2 years ago
    No I don't think so. Yours is a very soft looking face, and fine hair. The eyebrows are all wrong as well. Though maybe the artist was just trying to soften up the model. But, I really don't think this is it.
  16. kyratango kyratango, 2 years ago
    Right, there are similarities but also differences... Severine was quite a person!
  17. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 2 years ago
    Strong similarity!
  18. Gillian, 2 years ago
    The nose is so very wrong.
  19. OneGoodFind OneGoodFind, 2 years ago
    The 1st pic that shows up looks like a lot of character! The second pic looks much different, depending on my mood I think. It shows some kindness somehow. Still don't think I'd want to mess with her. It's a great piece. Look forward to see if anyone know more about her.
    Thanks for sharing it.

    OGF, so True :-)
    Thank you for your interest !

    Thanks Sean and all 20 lovers :-))
  21. Celiene Celiene, 1 year ago
    She kind of reminds me of Karen Grassle from Little House On The Prairie.
  22. kyratango kyratango, 1 year ago
    Yes, some idea of! Thanks Celiene :-)
  23. Recordmantime Recordmantime, 1 year ago
    love it ..don't know how I didn't see it before, love the brush style by the artist...
  24. kyratango kyratango, 1 year ago
    Recordmantime, hi!
    Yes, the artist had a pretty good hand :-)
    No idea who he was, but love this oil too, thank you my friend!
