Portrait of a Young Lady; Attributed to Philip Stuart Paice.



Item Ref



Oil on canvas, now mounted on board.
This is a charming and sensitive portrait of a very attractive young woman; she looks to her right, her head slightly raised, apparently lost in a reverie.
It is painted with Paice's characteristic broad brush strokes, and, in the treatment of the dress fabric, there is a painterly delight in the bravura brushwork.
